Cool What to do with an old wheel....

Damaged a Style 162 last winter and it wasn't worth repairing. Mom gave me an idea and went out and got me a kit. Here's what happened to that wheel...

Opened up a hole in a wheel cap to fit the clock


Test fit


Final product!

Hahaha! That's creative. Clean up the curb rash and it'd look a lot better.

That's neat! I would clean up the curb rash and maybe try to get some of the grime off and it would look awesome.

i'd consider cleaning the wheel thoroughly but curb rash is pretty bad and not worth fixing. i'm on the look out for larger clock hands
