How to attach your DeSoto hubcap

Real Estate Agent with Jameson Sotheby's International Realty

There are usually five lug-nuts that hold these things in place.  And it's important when installing these hubcaps, to tighten them from opposite ends.

Start with 12:00.... then 5:00...  then switch back to 9:00... you get the idea.

You want to make sure these puppies are tight, and won't work themselves loose.. and uh.... hold on a second.

[what is it?  I'm in the middle of a post here!?   What!?  What do you mean it's not a DeSoto hubcap??  it's a Costco Pumpkin Pie!?  But it's huge... it weighs four pounds, dammit!  Really?  Are you sure?!]

um.... Never mind.

Good morning Alan May wow a 4 pound pie? I might have confused it as well. And if I ever buy a DeSoto, now I know...

Yep.  Costco's pumpkin pie is famous (INfamous?) for it's size and weight.

I'm typically good for about one slice of pumpkin pie a year.  Now put a Key Lime pie in front of me and that's a different story.

My issue with that is I don't drive a Desoto.  Can I use the same idea on my Tucker or my wife's Plymouth?  and all goes easier with a Costco Cheese cake

It may be a touch oversized for a plymouth... but give it a try.
