I am still playing with it. I was thinking something like a dogdish center. I have a couple sets of early 50s Ford script caps. I need to find more aircleaner lids so I can experiment. Right now I have 2 but they are common, and most junkyards around here don't even charge for stuff like that.

That was pretty much what I was thinking except on the front of my rpu I don't want a wide or dished out rim.

I have had this idea for a long time so Saturday I picked up a couple early 80s Ford aluminum aircleaner lids. I cleaned this one up a little with some B-12 and fine steel wool. Then just laid the old spinner on for the pic. First problem is with a stock wheel the front hub hits and holds it out just a little. I had thought I could mount them with the hubcap mounting thingy for the center screw like my 88 Merc has but that thing holds the cover out almost 2 inches. Maybe cut out the center for some sort of cone, or take it out to the hubcap bumps and use a dogdish cap. Any ideas? comments?
