Wheels!

Wheels are fixed and will be off for rubber soon. The machine shop faced the hub face so that its Square to the plane of the wheel. Then the wheels were Lathed to spin true and not wobble. The fix worked perfectly and they are exactly the way they need to be. Will be moving on to the electrical system soon and bummer.... we have to add a second radiator. So that will mean a little rework on the ass end.
