Hello! I made these valve stem covers for my jeep tires. They turned out incredible, and all my buddies asked for a set. I go to the range a lot for my job, and I've been saving all my bullet casings. I want to "take the plunge" and order the blank valve stem caps wholesale. I think this is an awesome way to "upcycle" something that would have otherwise been thrown away. The valve stem caps I'm looking to order are 4.3 x 3 x 0.5 inches. This is the industry standard, and they should fit every tire. 

I don't hunt- no animals are harmed in this creation. Only targets ;)

The final product is harmless. The bullet is no longer in the casing, and the primer and gunpowder are gone. All that's left is a hollow hunk of metal, which is perfect for inserting a valve stem cap :) 

Thanks for reading :)

Risks and challenges

“A ship is safe in harbor, but that's not what ships are for.”

There aren't a lot of risks associated with this project, but the biggest one lies in the valve stem cap supplier. If the one I've been working with can't fill my bulk order for whatever reason, I have others in mind :)
