You do?!?!! You know, I think Finnegan *did* tell me about those and I got really excited! Do you have his # to text him? Wait. I have an idea (it happens). I'll send you our contact info in a PM.

Old thread, but nevertheless an AWESOME one! I recently "lost" one of my roundels and so I'm taking this opportunity to create a custom one. I've laid out the design and looking forward to building it. THANK YOU for posting this. BTW, how did the center caps come out? Also, did you change the emblem on the steering wheel? If so, how?

I'm having the same problem too. I was trying to find someone to print on vinyl but, because I am using just an outline of the BMW logo, they won't do it. I've attempted to create the roundels myself (see my avatar), but I'm having problems w/water seeping in the crease and causing water stains on the decal - and that's AFTER having sprayed a few layers of clear coat over the original sheet then a few more layers once I put the roundel back together. I'm hoping the OP still checks this thread and can give some suggestions......HELP!

Custom Roundels

This is super interesting! I am curious, though - How does the print hold up to direct sunlight over time?

Your best bet if you want the OP to add to this would be to send a PM. They haven't post in this thread for quite awhile.

Although not in direct sunlight, the center caps I created have held up pretty well (since the beginning of August). They're just now showing signs of water stains. I've bought some clear vinyl that I'm going to attempt to use over the custom roundel - hopefully that will fix my problem w/o being too bulky once I put them back together.

I've tried that (I think, been a while now). I'll try it again. Wasn't sure if he was even up here anymore.
