One more try

Finally got around to the pizza pans again after the previous failure.

I like the plastic idea because it seems less prone to cause damage if it comes off but I'm kind of attached to the pizza pans.

I ordered some extra lug nuts, drilled thru the acorn top (really hard steel, so had to spring for the expensive drill bit) and welded 1/4-20 nuts to them. I had to make sure that the new lug nuts had the same dimensions for the wrenching flats as the stock lug nuts. I had no idea lug nuts with the same thread would have different hex dimensions. Fortunately the lug wrench that came with the truck fits these new lug nuts even with the 1/4-20 nut welded on top.

Anyhow, painted the pizza pans, drilled a couple of holes and screwed them on with no problem (so far).
