Dog Dished Hub Caps and Steel Wheels
« on: February 24, 2010, 12:51:55 AM »


I like the copo look and I want to add the dog dished hub caps and steel wheels to my 69 camaro here is a link of what I'm looking at..

http://rides.webshots.com/album/555211142ZJiyud

I wanted to know if I can get those caps and wheels in 15"..

I would also like to know if some one could send me some pictures of the rocker moulding close up.
Pictures close up where the quarter meets the tail at the bottom also close up picture of the roof drip area..

Thanks

John-  If you're looking to buy everything new, Wheel Vintiques has the steel wheels you want and Rick's First Gen has the caps. You would have to call Wheel Vintiques and talk to a salesperson for the exact wheel, backspace, etc. The part number for the caps at Rick's is TR-117. Maybe WV has the caps too, I don't know. Just make sure when you order the caps, ask them if they'll fit those 15" wheels, because originally they came on 14" wheels. Sorry to be so longwinded, just trying to give you all the info I could!  Good Luck!  Larry

Thanks Larry,
I am bidding on a very nice set on ebay and I was hoping they would fit 15" rims.

I love the look of that CAR!!

I´m going for the same look that you are but i used the original 14x6" but with the steel wheels for disc brakes! COPOS had like 14x7" wheels.





I also have 2" dropped Hotchkis Sport leafs in the back and 2" dropped sport springs in the front!

  Painterdude I won those caps... ;D and for the first price I bid of 75 bucks.. :o

The guy from the chevelle site said the wheels he has are from 1970's- 1980...

He told me he refinishes them and would sell me a set for 250 plus shipping...sounds like a good deal...

My copo clone is starting to come together I didnt think I would find those parts...

Anyone on here have a set of hood hinges....I dont want to buy the cheapo new ones I have new springs but my hinges are wobbly...
