Turbo hubcaps

Have they started reproduction of these yet?
I emailed Holden about 6 years ago asking for permission to exact replicate these but never followed through with it.
Has anyone actually started repro? Rare spares or anyone?

I think you'd find for it to be worth it you'd need to make a few thousand, there's probably not a market for that many

The good thing that I’ve seen from the reproduction of VL parts is that it is driving the NOS prices down.

Besides headlights/ tail lights

3D printers are getting cheaper by the month. It won't be long until we can do full resto's with new parts.

All jokes aside mate that's a great point!
Panels are already being reproduced and as you said 3D printer could take care of most of the rest..... New Vl anyone ? Lol
