Hi there! I've been looking at all the nice Beetles on this website, and I think I've found a mod I want to do. It's putting old Beetle hubcaps onto a new Beetle. I have 4 old hubcaps, but I don't have any mounting clips. Where can I get them? Also, how would I mount them? Would I have to drill holes in my rims?

Thanks!

Which style "old" hubcaps do you have? If you have late mode 4 lug covers they won't work.
You need the earlier (more domed) hubcaps as well as the clips.
I saw you found the post, so I didn't bother to search for you. But I had done this mod on a friends car and it looked great.
Just make sure you have the right caps!
If you're not sure, post a pic.
