Hello all,

I am slowly blacking out every part of my 8-ball. Since its an '07 most of it was blacked out. I already have the mirrors, bars and headlight (like the kingpin)

I just got the left side cheese wedge with the ignition hole. But my Vic shop says I cannot use that same cheese wedge (with the ignition hole plugged) because there is no way to attach it.

Does anyone know of a cheese wedge I could put on the right side?

i have two extra wedges collecting dust, FYI they are all the same you just need to find the 100ci emblems to put on them and then find a way to attatch them, i will paint them for you even for a little extra $

I have an 07 Vegas 8ball. My victory dealer special ordered the black cheese wedge for the ignition side.

Blackout Wedges

I notice this thread has a few months on it, but I just blacked mine out over the weekend.
Both wedges had the keyhole punch-out. The left side needs a little "something" in the wedge area. Both sides are the same color/gloss but the lighting makes them look different. Went with satin black to try and match up the engine block and head covers rather than the gloss of the paint.

$10 and 3 hrs time got me to the finished product:

After I put the cheese wedge on I hated it. I wanted something glossy to match the paint. I am returning it to the shop.

I think if you pull the wedges you will find that the base plates are identical but the right side has a solid insert where as the left has a hole for the key. You can purchase cheese wedge inserts at a variety of dealers like Noemtz and WitchDoctors. They just use peal and stick tape to hold them on. :cool:
