I started sanding the wheels with the sander then it hit me this is going way to slow, so the shop smith to the rescue.
I would have been sanding for hours but with the ss or any drill press I had them sanded and perfect in an hour, and since it was so easy I took more time with them to get out all the sanding marks.
I routed around the rim of the test tire and rim and stained it just to get a look see and didn’t really like the look, but went back and stained the whole tire and rim and it turned out looking good, but forgot to take a picture so will show it next time I hope.
If I do any more of these I will get a adjustable hole saw cutter so I can make the tire and rim in one peace,I think it will look much better.
I meant to route the center and the inside of the rim but got thinking so much on the spokes I forgot to route them.
You must remember this was a experiment and hind site is 20-20 so know a little better what needs to be done now..but hey not to bad for a first try me thinks.
It just hit me what these tires look like.
Race tires on a road racing motor cycle.
Couldn’t you see a tall set of these on a motor cycle model. Hmmm!!!
I love and have owned over 20 bikes so Hmmm!!! on the bike model. LOL
Just showing the back to see the differents of not routing the rim.
The frame was a little bigger than the engine hood so used the router to even it out.
Wanted to get the insides done so I could seal them before putting on the top.
Doing the fenders is a real project so got so into it I forgot to take picture so need to do that with the truck. sorry!
