Not sure what it's called, but around the openings around the mounting plates they used sheets of a black putty-like material. Also used this anywhere else there could be a leak. A better choice from today's technology would be the stuff 3M makes to seal body seams before the primer coat goes on. It's just pliable enough to survive small movements and paintable. I also don't remember what this stuff is called, either, but any good automotive paint supplier would know what I'm talking about.
Glad to hear another TP is getting a full frame-off restoration! We just LOVE pics! The more, the merrier!

Well, if you want a bike that looks like maybe they were made to mate together, look for a good Kawasaki Voyager 1300 sixer, like mine. The styling just seems to be along the same lines. They look so good together.

What did you use for a center cap on the sidecar's wheel?

I bought a set of four universal three point spinners with five bolt adapters (outomotive bolt pattern). These spinners do thread on and off the adapters. They also have three little allen set screws to lock them in place on the adapters. However, those adapters would puch the spinner too far out, so I whittled up a very thin (3/8") aluminum adapter that bolts to my stock TP hub, then the spinner locks onto it using those three little allen set screws. I machined the adapter to make the spinner tighten against the hub face as you tighten the screws.
I think it adds just the right touch along with color matching my wheel to the bike's wheels. Also, I never liked having a plastic cap hanging out there in the air just waiting to be hit! If the spinner gets hit, I have three more ready to go.
If anybody is interested in this arrangement, I can spin up another adapter and provide a spinner. Or, I can also take some detailed pics and post for those who can do their own.
