On peut toujours parler en français, mais je crois que ça serait mieux qu'on continue en anglais afin de faciliter la discussion avec les autres membres.

Bought myself a set of pizza trays and I was wondering how you attached them onto the hubcap. Thanks !

Good to know that you have decided to put some wheel covers on your echo!
It was pretty simple. We drilled 3 holes in the original hub cap, and in the pizza pan. Then we nailed it together with nut and screw. Did the same for the 4 wheels.

I don't know if you can see in the photo, but the nails are placed at the extremity of the cover. FYI : If you plan to put some Wheel skirts, make sure that the pizza pan do not take to much place, every inch is very important for good AF.

I just don't understand how the nail holds the pizza pan onto the hubcap. From what I can see in the pictures, it looks like a rivet.

Reason I ask is because I was thinking on using "pop rivets".
