Looking for unique part

I'm looking for the round plate that covers the spare tire in a E28.

I fabricated one out of some thin sheet aluminum. Do that or get some thin composite board and jig saw it out. I didnt bother to find one from a wreck or part car.

Thx de Witt. I was thinking the same – making it out of composite board. My problem would be cutting a prefect circles (I’m anal that way); but that's what I do because not having a support is worse. Who knows maybe I’ll find it a swap meet somewhere.

I missed you. You are great asset to the E28 M5board.

you may even be able to take the composite board to a cabinet shop and they would be able to cut out a perfect circle
