Got the last wheel.
This is before support and cleanup are done.
And this turned out to be much more work than the other 3 wheels as this is printed in 0.2mm layers,vs the others was done in 0.05.
Printing time was 10 hours vs 2 hours for the last one.

I just finished my first ever 3d print 

Some VW wheel hub caps I found online. Sadly I can't find them at this moment so I will come back with the creators name and where.

I will call this success 



A bit misshap on the vw logo on two of them, but still useable.
Wheels also have clamp for 7mm nut on the backside


My plan is to fit them on these wheels when I'll get to print the 1.7" Knight Customs outer covers




This setup will be the closest to the orginal wheels my father had on the van.

Today I printed a Ansen Slot Mag wheel.
I'm a sucker for Slot Wheels. Don't think these will go on this build, but will be on a trailer build for sure.
Creator of these was MrGreyZ on Tingiverse.
This one is 1.5 so they are front of Grasshopper, Hornet etc.
I've fitted a M chassis tire. For best result they need a extra bead glued on to suit the M chassis tire width.







I also printed one 1.7" cover from Knight Customs to suit FAV wheels.


The hubcaps I printed earlier, fits perfect into  the wheel cover.


With the cover fitted to the FAV wheel, it looks like a VW wheel now.
Boom Racing 2mm scale bolts also add to the scale element.




Wheelcaps do not clear the scale bolts, so either I need to file clearance voids for them, or print the wheelcap sligthly bigger.
But the main parts are there
