Tippen Delta hub caps
« on: April 02, 2009, 11:09:59 AM »
Hi folks

I'm trying to help a French friend with the restoration of his 1968 Tippen Delta.  So far I've managed to locate brake parts and rear lights.  The next item on his shopping list is chrome hub caps to fit the rear wheels which take a 125/12 tyre and grip the caps with three lugs, a bit like the Morris Minor system.  Can anyone help please?  I've emailed the Master, Stuart, but if anyone else has any ideas that would be great.

Regards
Nick D.

Dear Stuart

Before the megalomania sets in, I think Nick was perhaps referring to some other master such as Master mind or Master BXXXX ...........

I think Nick should clarify the situation.

Not the infamously-named cabin boy in early Captain Pugwash cartoons? (Before the BBC realised and changed it)

 Ho hum, that's life I suppose. One moment I'm an iconic time lord, the next I'm a lowly cartoon charector  :'(.  I still think I'd rather be mistaken for Roger Delgado than Roger the cabin boy....   By the way, what's wrong with a bit of meglomania? Surly all boys go through a phase of it don't they?  Oh hang on, that's mXXXXXXXXXX.....   :-[
