    Making wheels round again.

    After trying water cooling via the hosepipe we knocked the grinding disk on the head and used a £6 Lidl circular saw blade. We finished the 2nd wheel last night

    FWD gets new shoes

    There used to be a 1920's Cottain Desgouttes car in north wales with what was said to be a Stutz Bearcat in it. Given it was a British registered car. It makes me wonder if the engine was actually a FWD one.

    Coventry climax Godiva fire engine trailer

    Pity you cant get any of these. These are pukka Lorry tyres but without the all important CE mark so sold as agricultural. I bought 5 a year or so ago for my trailer. https://www.bigtyres.co.uk/tyres.html?tyre_size=2873&manufacturer=2411

    Just my 2 penneth worth. The rear wheel with holes in it is Dennis. Same as fitted to their trailer pumps. The front wheels are simply 23 inch rim Sankey wheels, as fitted to a lot of vintage lorrys. 33x5's as you note (33 (OD) - (2x5 (height) = 23 rim) And they are 8 stud, not 6. There is an adaptor between the 6 stud hub, and 8 stud wheel. If it were mine, Id put the adaptor between the wheel and the hub, not in front of the adaptor. It would look more accurate in wheel terms, but it would bring them further out, may have wing issues.

    Try nearly 20years later!. I suspect (no evidence to back my suspicions) that the trailers they had were sourced from Dave Sanders up the road.

    From memory they were extended at the back by a fair bit. Very crude

    The plant hire firm on the Colomendy Industrial estate in Denbigh converted them and sold them on to Farmers. I used to work next door on my holidays while I was a student. There were a number of different styles, but all 3 wheel and sprung

    Tigerseal is simply a black polyurethane sealer that dries to look like black rubber. The wide boys use it to glue their wide boy body kits on their wannabe hot hatches. And it takes all paint 11quid a tube at your local halfrauds

    id use 'Tigerseal'. And put a thumbsworth smeared over the inside while i was at it too. No problem with painting Tigerseal. Its often used in austin 7 circles as a gasket goo.

    Ive just bought some Lucas medallions for the lamps on my Austin 7. Looks like you just need to araldite one of suitable size on your post and it will be indistinguishable from a pukka one https://www.vintagecarparts.co.uk/products/516luc-lucas-lamp-badge-medallion you also do not need lamps of any sort to be legal, provided you do not take it out in the hours of darkness
