    "I transferred the hub cap retainer clips from my stock 15" split rims to 
a set of 16" F*RD rims and mounted the stock Chev half moon hub caps to them. 
It took a little bit of word (read pain in the butt) but now that it's done 
it looks great.  You'll need to shim the clips off the lower dished portion 
of the wheel a little so that the hub clips firmly engage the hub caps so you 
don't loose them."

    Boy that's neat! How are the retainers attached to the Chevy wheels, how 
should they be removed, and how should they be attached to the Ford rims? 
Somehow I had figured they were welded on, and could not be messed with. What 
did you use to shim them? I love the prospect of using the stock Chevy hub 
caps to hide the Ford wheels.
