    Gene Winfield sells (or used to) sell a bullet that fits perfectly - NightProwlers may also. Make an aluminum disc and pop-rivit it into the center of the cap, drill for the bullet, and you're home free. Resist the temptation to bolt the bullet directly to the plastic center disc - it will eventually break and loose the bullet - I know!:eek:

    You're on your own for the rest. Here is a picture showing mine.....

    I'm glad you guys like my Hubcaps. They are 1957 Caddy with parts I added to them. Stuff that I came across at swap meets over the years. You can add anything to them, you almost can't go wrong. Don't be scared, give it a try. They are a real crowd pleaser at car shows.

    See Ya! Randy

    carshots 002x.jpg These are on my '49. I think I got the bullets on eBay. They didn't come with a crossbar for attaching them, but that was a quick and easy fab. See ebay under hubcap bullet or some such business.

    The spinner/bullet is off an old aftermarket wheel cover like sold by J.C. Whitney, Montgomery Wards etc. back in the 50's and early 60's. good luck finding any in decent shape, i think those things rusted the first time they got wet!
