Having the project is what makes me happy, finishing it isn't something I think about.

since you had great success; could you tell me what you used for drilling spacing? smile

that was my question, how the heck did you get the spacing so looking good?

Re: Gentlmen... may i introduce...... the Skyway Ace Rim

I think back about all the tuffs I owned where a spoke broke. I was too lazy to send them back for a replacement. This idea would have been perfect.

That looks great! The hubs and painted logo really complete the look! cool How did you drill the spacing like that?

Re: Gentlmen... may i introduce...... the Skyway Ace Rim

i've seen a set that had conventional hubs bolted into the centre.tongue

Wow, great craftsmanship.    Lots of patience drilling those wheels.   You should send pics of them to Skyway, I am sure they would love to see it.
