Where do you get those little red plastic plugs?

I see some pictures of drum brakes with the clean-out holes plugged with little red plastic plugs. Where do you get those? I asked at the local hardware store and they had no idea what I was talking about.

Re: Where do you get those little red plastic plugs?

Try buy/sell forum? Maybe a surplus store, you prob will not be able to buy them new, but may be able to find something similar. Maybe a motorcycle wrecking yard, treats? Mopedjunkyard.com?

Re: Where do you get those little red plastic plugs?

I've seen similar plugs used to plug up other stuff, so I don't think they're just for brakes.

You can get them at a hardware store but they may be black or chrome and not red.

Ink caps

here buy these then sell the rest for a buck fifty and use the 50 cents for stamp and envelope so you will make a buck on each cap
