    Center Cap Evolution

    Im in the process of getting a set of C36 monoblocks re-finished (17 square set of fronts) for the 420.

    My question is prompted by the center caps that I was sold at the MB dealer last time I dropped in and needed replacement for the stock 15 wheels. I was sold a center cap with a chrome mercedes star that sits proud of the wheel face. The original center cap was an all silver (no chrome) star that was recessed into the wheel a bit. Meaning- the star itself is flush with the wheel face. Unlike the chrome star cap where the star sits slightly proud.

    Anyway... does anyone know what the original cap that came with the C36 was? My OCD would like to get the correct cap... and Im wondering if anyone knows the history on the various deigns, what was available when, and so on...


    TIA!

    Ingvar is correct. The C36 came with the center caps which were all silver and the same ones that the .036 came with as well.
