110 spare tire cover question from Newbie

Hi Folks,
New member here with new restored 1988 110 station wagon, 1997 NAS D90 soft top for over 10 years, and had 1966 109 5 door for ten years, purchased with 12K original miles.

I have a technical question. I would like to attach the new white plastic spare tire cover I bought. I have only seen these on NAS 110s and 90s. The studs holding my spare on the back door are not long enough to reach to the recessed openings in the plastic plate. there must be extenders in order to attach the plate with capped lug nuts.

I can't figure it out even though I have examined a number of photos of 110s. The 16" wheels seem to all be the same.

Could someone please help by letting me know what is required to mount the new plastic defender plate?
Thanks in advance

Almost looks like a 1700's home on Schoolhouse Lane in Mendham. You should be able to push the cover in (it's plastic) to reach the studs. Your rim isn't the intended one to use with the cover, plus the size of your tire may be pushing it away from the studs.

Joseph I just bought a house out here a town away from you (but still living in NYC a while longer) if you ever want to come by and talk rovers. Out here mostly on weekends.

sounds good

Ok I checked it out and I guess I can depress the plastic far enough to reach the studs. Any advice where I can get the capped lug nuts? (I think they are galvanized) I only have the open ended ones.

Sure, I would love to chat rovers. If you are out this weekend, I am taking the 110 to an antique car show at my club in Bernarsdville, and a small rally 11:30 on Saturday.

Maybe you could come along?
