    Default HRE 504 Waffle Caps

    Just picked up a set of 16" HRE 504s for pocket change but they didn't come with waffle caps of course. If anyone has any leads let me know.

    These are what I got


    and these are what I need

    I just picked up the same set of wheels without caps as well. I'm having a hard time finding any leads on a set.

    I won't snake in on any offers made to you but if by chance you happen to find someone selling more than one set please let me know!

    I got a set of 504's without caps as well. REALLY difficult to find. Best of luck. Will keep an eye out for any I find.

    Since there is already three of you in this thread needing them, If you guys pool together five or so more people who want the waffle and plate assemblies, I can do a one time small batch run of billet machined cap assemblies. Not going to be cheap but will be better quality than the factory ones for sure.

    If anyone wants to loan one to copy, I could create a CAD model from which you could have new ones machined or 3D printed. From Shapeways, a plastic cap that size would run about $25ea, printed metal wouldn't be worth the cost compared to the price Vince is offering.

    I started a group buy for the waffle covers and hex caps. Here's the link to the GB thread:

    Upload a 3D model, Shapeways gives you a price for different material types, then you can order them.

    Here's a link to a test part:

    Thanks for the info, I guess I should probably learn how to use a 3D model first. lol
