Good afternoon all,

I wondered if anyone had any tips for;

A. Filing down the wheel castings. Mine will require a lot of hand filing/sanding so I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions.

B. the removal of rubber around the rim. When vulcanised it has got to places on the rim I'd rather remove it from but the stuff seems bullet proof.

A flap disc on a hand grinder is ideal for removing excess rubber from the wheels
