    I bought these some years back and finally decided something just didn't look right about them. The pony emblem sat on top of the surface instead of flush like all the others I have seen. I thought these were factory but after pulling one apart today it looks like someone just glued a chrome metal disc to a stock pony cap, then glued the emblem back on.

    Anyone else have these or maybe shed some light on them?

    It's a chrome metal disc glued to a factory plastic cap.

    Were the factory chrome caps made of all plastic?
