Custom hi-tech hubcap remover

We’re doing some maintenance on the ’32 in preparation for the summer, and one job on the list is to repack the wheel bearings.  With painted wheels, there is a finite number of times the hubcaps can be removed before the inevitable scratch occurs.  Hopefully this little tool will decrease the odds…

We took an old screwdriver that has been sitting in the screwdriver drawer for ages.  There was no good reason it was there – it was missing the bit.  If my wife had gone through the screwdriver drawer, this little guy would probably have been recycled into a part of my keyboard now.  We just cut a wedge into the handle that will pop the caps right off.  You can hammer on the end of the screwdriver… works like a champ!
