Oh NO now I have to go out and measure MY hubcap lips
NOOOOOOOO, don't do that!!!
One of mine was different to the others. It did my head in and I couldn't cope, so I had to go out and buy a whole new set. It cost me $1100.
$300 for the hubcaps, $700 for a couple of sessions with my Psychiatrist and $100 for the medication.
But my new ones are shiny, soooooo shiny, shiny, shiny, arrrrrrrrrr, so shiny, arrrrhhhh.
Remember it doesn't matter how wide your rim on the hubcap is, they still come off the same and rolls away under a passing vehicle finds it.
I had 3 different to the other one. Maybe I should see my psych or just buy some nerd glasses .
Perhaps I need to try the different hub caps to see if that makes any difference to oil temperature
You need two of them face to face to make the pulley.
Try one as an under engine exposed oil cooler & can double as a drip tray. Cable ties or coat hangers & an extra oil pickup & I reckon 15 degrees less in it.
You guys got way too much time on your hands. Go on ....beggar off & reno a kombi & stop fixating on hubcap shape (I've done my reno) or get out & cruise. Oh & thanks for your responses...they were very funny.
Who's paying for my nerd glasses?
Nerd glasses still on unfortunately.https://forums.kombiclub.com/thread...-or-other-car-today.53746/page-30#post-648332
Old Boy got some new hubcaps. Really disappointed with just 2 years from the new ones ex America. Note the curve on the ouside edge of VW logo.Does that flat square edge outside the VW logo give anyone clues about where these come from? See above is a curve down to a flay & then the logo & this one a sharp edge & an angle down to the logo
Right width outside edge tho'.
Just $160 for 4 from the boys whom were doing the clocks & proper Kombi edge width. Now it seems the centre not the same? Bloody OCD
Been a long time since I went through the same process. Collected a lot of period hub caps many years ago, like your photo above there are differences in the VW logo also, both how sharp the pressing is and how far out the pressing protrudes from the rest of the hub cap. Can't say I found a definitive answer, but agree there were differences depending on the manufacturer, not necessarily the year.
And yes, kombi are different to type 3 and beetle!
T3 seem to have the wider edge, or at least the ones that came on mine were and look old enough to be originals.
At least it still says “VW”........ could be worse.
Even the logo is represented differently. Anyone got some medication for my OCD? I've now got 16 hubcaps & have to check how many pairs I have let alone sets! I do have todays set of four.....thankfully ........to appease my OCD.
You mean the way it looks more like an abstract Honda than a VW?
Stop teasing the afflicted.
