I am starting a new thread for each of my SCC kits... future builders will be able to see tips that have been gratefully received by others, more expert than me, and there will be a few photos in each thread that may also prove to be useful for future builders.  Fortunately, I haven’t had any problems (so far) with the building of the first rear wheel - this time I left the spokes in the Cementone for 1 hour, instead of 30 minutes, and they cleaned up pretty well.  You have to dry them thoroughly otherwise they start to get a film of rust on the surface quite quickly.

Rear wheel 4353bb10

Here is the wheel before the spokes are removed, one by one, and bonded into place with the araldite.

What should I do about this part , all round the wheel where the rubber has not adhered right up to the edge..... should I cut it all so that the wheel then has a lip which I will paint ?  Thanks very much for any tips.

That appears to be "flash" from the moulding.

You can trim it back to remove the "flap" I painted up to the edge of the rim. Then coated the steel "running face" with a thin layer of liquid rubber. This sealed everything up while maintaining flex.
