Brian are those wheels the ones you had the "secret" fix for? Or did you just paint the white walls on?

A few redheads showed up today, and one thing lead to another. (Don't worry, the cute little one in front is 18 for sure!)

Terry. the secret to fix my wheels was I cut a large circle of styrene, then I spray mounted it to the wheel then ran a very small bead of thin super glue around the joint to hold it.  The styrene is only like .020 thick so it's so thin you can't tell it's not painted and it is perfectly white. 

Maybe I need to go into refurbishing people's wheels.  If you need wheels fixed up contact me and we can talk....

How did you cut the styrene so perfectly round?

Those are some nice kettles, Gentlemen!! Duke, you just gave me my first glimpse at a metal top handle redhead!! Love the 50's triangle pan. Between Duke's triangle fabrication, Brian's wood handles, and Jeronimo?'s possible twist ash pan fabrications, WOW!!! Now if we could find a way to replicate the old metal handle shape ('50s-'80) for the appropriate restore or "hot rodding" a modern kettle then the possiblilites are endless!  ;)

Ummm...I dont have one of those machines sitting around in my garage!  But, I do have 2 grills that have those same wheels that it would look good on.  Just let me know!

Okay for the guys who live around here maybe we can meet up and I can just take your wheels and fix them.  Jeff your easy to get to, Terry, maybe you send me your wheels since your mailing me stuff anyhow, and then we can meet up once I fix them, does this sound like a plan?  For the guys out of town who need this we can discuss....

I have to meet up with Terry next week.  If he wants to give me his wheels, that would be fine with me.

I may not be able to send the wheels, having one hell of a time getting the caps off. If I can get them off I'll ship with the other stuff Brian. If not, another time.

Get those caps off and get the wheels to Jeff.  Just grab them with a vice grips or ease them off with a flathead screw driver.  I got caps if you need new one...  It will give me an excuse to go talk shop with Jeff at his museum, which I always love....

yeah...those caps are easy to come by at Ace Hardware in the parts drawers.   They are called push on caps...or something like that
