Thanks, I actually like the dirty look. When I get larger hands, I'll clean the wheel up as well.

If you have a wheel that has to be scrapped but visually OK, I'd say you've got yourself a good starting point for a office clock.

Great idea but a total waste of a center cap.....especially since I'm always looking for spares! lol Great idea though. I've always liked furniture made from/out of car parts.

I would put a trim around the outer rim where the curb rash is and do a color scheme that resembles a Movado or Rolex or something. Or you could just bedazzle it.

I'd say get a little more creative with it. Paint it black with big white hands and markings of the time on the wheels. Maybe just me but I'd do a little bit more than installing a clock in the middle.
