Just wanted to remind any of you with hubcap problems, V-12 Bill kindly launched me on this new career some years ago, and I now have a few solutions, including '36-'48 L and LZ caps, still not as good at doing them as I want them to be, but on a pretty decent cap I can make them look pretty nice, I have some almost show quality '41's, '46's and '48s, and a smattering of the other years, let me know if I can help

Hi Abe, those spring clips that hold the hub caps on were also used on Early Fords and trucks, a truck supply might be able to furnish some that could be riveted on, Narragansett in RI advertises those front wheel late '47-'48 hubcap scripts for $10 each, of course you dont need scripts on the rear because of the skirts, so the rear hubcaps are plain

The hubcap scripts advrtised by Naraganst are the raw castings and need to be plated. The plating cost is $80 or $90 extra.

Hard to believe they would be getting $80/$90 for that faux gold plating, on anything but a 100 point show car, a quick shot with a gold spray bomb should make them fine, all Connie spare tire caps are at a premium, I would hold out for a trade myself, the Mac drag links are probally the same as the Kanter's, but I would be tempted to go for a repaired original myself, as foreign made replacements are of questionable quality, just heard from my neighbors about my hubcap restorations, they are no where near as enthused about them as I am due to the noise, so it looks like the end of another era
