77. Finding center

**Warning: Rant follows – I’ve been recently “upgraded” to WordPress’ latest editor which they call the “Block editor”; it’s total garbage.  The additional clicks required to add captions to images and the bugginess is enough to make me not want to write another blog entry, utter trash.  OK, rant off, I’ll figure this thing out.**

Side by side.  The center caps are held in place using the o-ring originally supplied by Forgestar to retain their own center caps.

I decided the plain is a better look.
