No-one has come forward regarding the found Late Tiger hub cap.

Does anyone know who own's Tiger 213, which is sitting next to the JP in the picture above ?

I think that's Gary Richardson's Tiger. The antenna on the side of the turret wall gave it away.

Hi Adrian

Thanks again for the detective work in tracing the hub to Tiger 213. I didn't realise it was missing until you contacted me. It would have been a pain getting the paint to match if I had to get a new one. I think a small dab of Loctite is in order on all the hubcaps.

Regards
