    61E843DC-5993-40C4-AC8C-5D494E19400C-1.JPG 4x4.5 pattern spidercaps coming spring 2017! The people who were inquiring and people who do not know about these being made, here is an update. It's been a long process but they are almost here!

    just got the sample base plate back to test the fitment on an actual rim. Next step is to have the center cones welded on the back side.

    These are a bit different from the originals. There is only one plate with cone and you can use stock lug nuts with the plastic lug covers or use bullet shaped lug nuts. This design will make it easy for removal of wheel and tire, instead of the traditional 1 piece cap and base ring to screw into

    It will be about a month to get the final sample in hand and test fit, and another 90 days till they actually run a production on them.

    I cant wait to finally get them completed and out on some cars!

    Good luck with your project, whether it's "traditional" or not. Obviously a potentially
    good idea for Falcon owners.

    Thank you, I know there are a lot of falcon owners on this page that have been looking for them. Here's a pic of my 1963 squire wagon with non traditional 60s Cal custom spider caps and original n.o.s. keystone chrome reverse wheels IMG_20161103_074944.jpg

    Been watching and waiting for the 4 lug spider caps. Are these still going to be for sale to the public?
    Evilfalcon1961

    Do you need an investor or are you interested in selling your product outright and let someone take over the production rights? Hit me up at davefender@comcast.net

    These spider caps would look great on my Corvair Lakewood with factory rims and bow tie beauty rings.

    If you haven't already, post this on a Corvair forum. The early Corvair guys always have trouble finding good looking wheel setups and I'm sure some of them would love these.
