Hub cap attached but spins on wheel when driving.

The hubcaps on the 2106 are very sturdy and heavy. My right front hubcap is firmly attached but, I can rotate it with my hand when the car is at rest. It squeaks when the car is underway.
What is the best way to fix this? I thought about adjusting the "fingers" that hold it on but remember when the hubcap when spinning off into the forest and I saw $400 of hoardered gold evaporating into thin air! I did recover it but is has a greater share of "patina" now.

Any suggestions?

Arn't we just a little crazy? We have these beautiful rolling works of art and we go 12 miles "without incident" and we are elated!

Do we need intervention??

This year for the first time I have got my car to a reliable state where I can actually go on a hundred mile trip without fear. The car made it clear what it needed to be a reliable companion, and I listened!
It has been a long road! Thank you Ross and Howard, and the recommissioning angel, John!!!!

Ross's garage is in a very rural place. It is so pastoral,he can do his bathing in a squeaky clean river down the street!

Love the hand made hood but in my opinion, the hood ornament on the roadster is your finest piece of small art. You should post a pic for your fans with and without the high beam on and give a brief description of how you came up with the design.

You sound rested after your trip to Africa! Didn't you have anything to do???? 😂

I had a problem with my solenoid as well. I did mess around with it but I decided that it was best to just get one from a rebuilder like Max Merrit. That starter is extremely hard to install and remove because of the weight and I didn't want to have to do it more than once. The money was well spent. Since I installed the rebuilt solenoid the starter works flawlessly.
I doubt seriously you will ever find a rebuild kit for the solenoid. When you open it up you will see it is
a magnificent piece of engineering as all the major parts are machined from solid copper.

Driving our cars should be fine. They dont spread the virus. Just don't stop and talk to anyone. I intend to drive mine but stop and talk to no one.
Also, I can drive my Packard to the grocery store. All it takes us wheels.

Wonderful work. I am sure that drive was fun. After we overhauled my differential, I simply could not believe that such an annoying and dangerous thing was gone forever. So, I'm pretty sure it's a great relief to have the car back to normal! Especially that gorgeous wood graining on the dash.

On Sunday mornings, weather permitting, I take my 47 Clipper to Panera for breakfast and then a drive to the Mt. Vernon estate along the GW Parkway. She starts right up and the OD works flawlessly since Ross Miller tinkered with the OD. Even with crappy ethanol gas, it is amazing how quiet the engine is at idle. Great engineering!
