I just did this with my NX center caps. All of them were missing the paint. I went to the local hardware store and go some aluminum spray paint. It looks ALOT better than it did. The color match is pretty good.

Could someone tell me a good place to buy center caps for the stock se-r wheels. I might just suck it up and buy it from the dealer but maybe somebody has some laying around. I need two because the two i have are faded and the paint has peeled off. I feel like this is a stupid question but i have searched se-r.net and i have also searched this forum but nobody seems to have adressed this problem before

I think Krylon or Duplicolor sells wheel spray that matches almost perfectly. Just lightly sand then down and repsray them in light coats. The lighter the coats the better the color will be.

Incase anybody has the same question in the future, i bought some duplicolor from walmart and painted my center caps. I washed them in soap, sanded them, and sprayed about 5 coats. I used a blowdrier and the whole process took less than 1 hour. THis is great! Even my mom noticed that i repaired them. By the way the color is silver for the stock rims. good luck to anyone else who tries it!
