    I painted my 19" cyclone wheel to gloss black. I want to do it to my center cap too, but want to preserve the T logo to silver. Wheel shop said they can only paint the whole cap. Does anyone have experience painting the wheel cap while preserving the silver T?

    Thanks!

    Yup.

    Just get a Tesla T sticker from Roger, lay it down and then paint.

    Nice! What kind of paint did you use?

    If anybody is looking for an extra set of virgin center caps, ping me. I powder coated my wheels and pulled my old set.

    EDIT: SOLD!
