Salvage Series Ep. 3 - Candelabra Trio with Hub Cap Shade
In Episode 3 of our Salvage Series, we wax up an old Ford hub cap and pair it with one of our DIY custom fixtures!
Step 1: Cleaning
Wax on, wax off! Buff out the rust with a splash of refreshing cola and a scrub with aluminum foil.
Step 2: Drilling
Next we drilled a hole through the center of the hub cap. The top of the cluster body will mount to the bottom of the hub cap.
Step 3: Wiring a Trio Pendant
Lighting Components You'll Need:
Step 4: Assembling
Attach the shade by feeding the gunmetal cord through the bottom of the shade and threading the barrel cord grip onto the cluster body.
Step 5: Drive with your brights on!
We used three LED Tube Candelabra bulbs for this particular build, but depending on what you find to turn into a shade we have plenty of bulb options to choose from! You can put a vintage vibe into any space with this up-cycled lighting project.
