One of several Hubcaps that have been gathering dust in my shed for the last couple of years, this one is a 1948 “FX” Holden Chrome Steel Hubcap, with “Gutter Rash”, where it came from has been lost in time, I think it was a gifted to me, along with a 1953 “FJ” Holden Hubcap, which is currently on the Bench.
The Backing Plate is a $3 Stainless Steel Charity Shop Purchase, the Neck is recycled Merbau, and a 7.5k P90 Style Single Coil Pickup is wired through Vol & Tone Pots to the Output Jack. :-)
"Thanx Doug & Rev", this is my 15th Hubcap Build, and number 16 is currently on the bench! :-D
I LOVE this! Well done, Amigo! I've yet to build a hubcap gitty - - someday!
