'49 Cadillac -- need a wheel hub dust cap
« on: October 15, 2015, 08:43:38 PM »
I was out in my '49 Cadillac yesterday when the front wheelcover came off while I was driving.  Luckily, I recovered the wheelcover and it was mostly undamaged -- scratched on the inside, but not the outside -- and the car itself suffered only one relatively small scrape.  When the wheelcover came off, however, it took off the dust cap that covers the wheel hub.  Missing, the hub looks like the attached image. 

I was able to recover the wheelcover, but I couldn't find the dust cap.  Any idea where I can order a new dust cap?  Thanks....
