    OK, I am once again looking for at least 1 or 2 wire spoke hubcaps for my Classic Roadster`s Duchess mgtd replica built on a 1970 VW chassis. If you have or know someone who has 1 or 2 of these lying around in good condition PLEASE let me know. THANKS

    I have a set of five in decent shape. They are locking style. You bolt a bracket to the wheel, put the locking cover on, then the basket. The center hub screws into the bracket.

    I am traveling. I will send you photos when I return home.

    Hi, just bought a set of wirre caps on EBAY from a dealer called nationwidehubcaps.  I was very pleased with the caps and the price. (roughly $60 including shipping, I think the selling price was $39)

    Found this MG kit car under an alvacado tree and trying to bring it back to life.  I need one spoke wheel hub cap to begin with.  Or I have three for sale.  Any help would be appreciated.   I did order 4 plastic ones to tied me over.  Anyone have any experience with these? 

    Found four hub caps.  Plastic so they will do for now.  Have three others if someone needs them.

    Ringo.

      Being new to all of this, please have patience.  I have posted the picture on the TD Replica site.  Where do you suggest I start looking.

    Also, my two rear view mirrors really do not let me see for safty sake, do you know of any right mirrors that can be attached to the windshild?  Or what do you suggest?

    No intention of sounding impatient, just thought the short answer was all that was needed. 

    As to where to look, wish I knew.  I’d start at some of the VW vendors like CP1, or a quick google search.  Some of the guys here probably have specific places to go.  Seems that some have had luck with Ebay.

    Hi W Lee,

    I put convex mirrors on both fenders. Moss Motors has them. JC Whitney usually has them too.

    Once they are adjusted and you get used to them, you have a pretty good view to each side.

    And a quick tip to actually getting replies to your questions…

    Keep each thread on topic. If you have a new question, create a new thread with the appropriate subject line. This helps us help to each other. No one is going to look at a thread titled “wire spoke hubcaps” for a question about mirrors. So someone with a really good tip might never see your question.

    Thanks,

    Thank you.  Rather steep learning curve, but I am grateful for your patience.
