Centre caps I can't supply any more, so this would have to be sourced, but they are only £7.99 delieverd for a set on Ebay.

Can you point me at a set of caps please?

Wish I could Andy! I wasted hours trying to get something suitable last time. The source I once used seems to have disappeared, and most offerings are either the wrong clipping diameter or too thick in the face. The last set I ended up turning the caps down to suit.

Hole is 50mm so have ordered a set of 50 / 55 mm caps. Shame the delivery is so long though.
