Wheel Center Caps for BBS RGR

Does anyone know where I can find Mazda symbol 70 mm center caps for BBS RGR wheels? I have recently purchased these wheels and would like to find center caps that look similar to the Spirit R's wheels, which were basically the BBS RGR wheels in style. I have found domed decals which are OK but kind of cheesy looking. Any help?
Thanks
Mike

I made my own. I started with the BBS center caps and bought a set of Mazda Protege (?) center caps and stole the Mazda emblems off them. I then sanded the BBS center caps down, hit with some hammered black Rustoleum and 3M taped the Mazda emblems on them.

To help a little bit more, I think I actually used these centercaps:

You can see on the rear the Mazda emblem can be removed from the actual cap. Some are just all one molded piece, obviously you DONT want those.

Ironically Matt, I just bought the same 4 caps off Ebay a few days ago. Great minds thinks alike. Lol. Also, for those interested, I found center caps that float just like spinner-type wheels you see on many cars. I was going to attach the Mazda symbols on these floating caps and these will then be seen, when the car is moving, as motionless.

If interested in something custom. Look up "Draklore" on instagram and send him a message. He also has a website (www.draklore.com) but it gets updated less frequently and he's pretty responsive on instagram. He makes some off the shelf and custom parts via 3D printing. On his instagram you can see some wheel center caps he has made before.

EDIT:
Realized it would be super easy to just add his instagram page here: https://www.instagram.com/draklore/?hl=en

I stumbled across this:

https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2303492

It looks like an adaptor to place the Mazda center caps into a larger diameter cap. They don't make it in 70 mm on their site, but this might be a more durable long term option if we could get it to be made for 70 mm size?
