    Default GS X2 hubcap fixture

    Hi everyone

    This question is for a good fruen of mine. He has got a lovely GS x2 that was converted to a pickup. I haven't see the pickup yet. But he says it looks great. Anyway

    There seems to be a problem fitting the hubcap onto the wheel. Apparently the central hole of the wheel is too big for the nut that is to be used with the hubcap? Is there a specific way of mounting the wheelcap or is there a part missing?

    I haven't seen the car myself so I am stating his words.

    Hi Corne
    If you're talking about the three spoke plastic one with the stainless centre, it fits into a ring piece that bolts onto the rim from the inside. You might have more luck than I have had in finding the securing rings as they were sold in South Africa, but I've been watching eBay on and off for years and have never seen anyone selling them.
    Please post a pic of the vehicle if you can.
    Cheers
    Bruce

    This US eBay listing ended last month, but didn't sell apparently: 161238000957 Only the one it seems.
    Found it and this thread by chance chasing something else.
