Week 85  This week we get the first wheel

The bits we received

And what we did with them

It's best to save this until you have the second wheel, which is supplied next week.

The first job is to paint the wheel.  I spray them with Halford's white primer, followed by a suitable red paint. They are really not that bright in reality.  The camera flash turned them bright red of some reason !!!

Now glue the discs together.  Sand the glued faces flat, then glue them together with super glue.

Finally apply the tyre, and paint in the valve.  That is simply painted silver, then the hollow is painted black.
