WTB: Silver hubcap for W123

I need one silver (actually painted silver) hubcap for my W123. For what it's worth, it's for the RF wheel.

I believe they are metal, if I'm not mistaken. How can I know for sure?

I've got 3 bare wheel covers off the 240D I'm parting out. LMK if you're interested in painting one...

I just painted one pastel biege. I highly recommend this as an alternative if you are unable to locate one of the correct color.

I don't have any that are silver with factory paint on them. I do have one with silver that I sprayed on but frankly it does not look very good.

To all who have replied - how hard are these to paint?

The toughest thing is masking them. I have heard here of a masking kit but have no experience myself. I have painted one or two but the results have not been all that impressive. I discovered recently that my local auto paint supply store can make mixed to match paint in a spray can. With this and some patient masking I think you should be able to get a pretty nice job.

If you just want a straight one I have several in white and ivory, I thnk.
