TE37SL Centre Cap Idea

So, i've been helping a friend who is a mechanical engineer set up a new machine shop. As a part of the deal, he's agreed to machine some parts for me, so I thought i'd see if the community here would like to help out.

As many of you know, the TE37SL does not accept centre caps. I was thinking of creating a centre cap adapter ring that would fit in the TE37SL, and allow you to then fit different Volk centre caps onto the wheel. It would be made of extruded aluminum, and most likely anodized. Any one interested in such a solution, or have suggestions on how to improve something like this?

I going to go to the shop late next week to start on the part, and will post pics as the work progresses.

Oh, and before the flames start, I know this is purely cosmetic, and defeats the weight savings of the SL.

Update:

Here is the non-anodized version:
