Months of planning, engineering, and machine time have gone into these new offerings. Our fourth product highlight is discussed below

4.bbs RS large thread premium hex caps – brand new design, machined bbs logos built into the design for the person wanting the truly premium set. can be entirely polished, plated, chromed, etc.. removes the pop in resin logos and replaces it with a much higher end machined logo.

The design question was fairly simple.. How do we simplify the billet half height hex cap assemblies we already produce (and are currently our best seller here at the studio) even further and allow for a cap that can be customized in its entirety? All original bbs logos from the ’70s, ’80s, and ’90s now are cracked and lifting from the heat, sun and age on plastic parts, and honestly the newness of a perfect logo in the center of the wheel really defines that of a well restored wheel.

heres our solution. Remove the resin logo altogether, follow the tolerances and overall shape of that domed cap from the original, and machine individual logos right into the face of the cap in a variety of logo lockups. Here are the two we are offering on the website

and the alternate version “designline” themed cap

these can be purchased immediately in the full mirror polish/machined logo options shown above, and in a few weeks in custom finishes, plating, chroming, etc.

now onto more pictures of the finished pieces since thats what everyone wants to see

and just to drop another teaser of the part that is in prototyping stages now and will be offered in the fall months.. The spinFAB billet resin logo/horn button set for bbs steering wheels. The vintage steering wheels have been gaining in popularity lately. Unfortunately just like most vintage items, most need work, are in disrepair, logos are faded and yellowed, etc. One main feature of the bbs steering wheel is the center horn button which is in just about every case broken and faded. Well just like our generous offerings of billet and resin parts for the bbs line of 3 piece wheels, why not have that same offering for your matching steering wheel?

This item will be offered with a single oem logo or set of 4 bbs logos (1 of each color) and our newest designed billet horn button logo holder. presses and locks into the steering wheel like the original, all function of the button is retained, and you get the option of any 70mm logo to match that of your wheels.
