WTB 1983 W123 Blue Hubcaps

I am looking for a complete set of blue hubcaps for my 1983 240D in good condition. I have a set of yellow hubcaps from a 1982 240D in great condition that I could swap or sell to you.

Thanks in advance!

Yep, not a hard DIY job at all. Some masking tape, an Exacto knife and a can of spray paint and you're good to go. The old paint comes off pretty easily with a paint stripper. Some people just leave them as all chrome. I've painted a few sets of them and they come out just fine. One key I've found is to remove the masking tape before the paint dries.

Depending on the color, you might also find a Rust Oleum, Krylon or such that is a good match. I used Rust Oleum white and almond on the two sets I did and the color match was pretty near perfect.
