It seems like they were everywhere when I didn't need one. Now I can't find one.
Thanks for your help!

I saw that site before. Those wheels are great but not in my budget. I'll have to find an old used one or something.

Sometimes you've gotta pay to play.

Even the old wooden ones are going for over $100.00.

but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up,
totally worn out, and proclaiming

I've never priced them. Assumed they were not cheap. What's the price range on them?

I'm making one at the moment.

I stripped the foam from a wheel I got off a starcraft van, then cut the right size (oversized to leave room for sanding) octagan from birch ply wood.
I've just finished glueing in the shim sections and when the glue is dry the two halves of the wood trim are bolted back together and sanded down to size. Then the wheel will be glued and bolted back together and the wood varnished.

You are welcome to copy my idea or you can make me an offer on this one when it's done as I'm not 100% sure I'm gonna use it as I got a Moon red flake wheel since I started this project that I'm quite happy with..

I realise it doesn't look that impressive at the moment but I'm confident it'll look great when finished. I'll post up photos of the finished product. smile
