Mate, the inserts you're talking about ( little black or clear parts ) are optional. They're not needed in your case. They are for steel rods, as you've said, but for, usually, curbside kits, which Fujimi usually make's 
Here's an idea if you're short on ... Check the diameter of the hole for the axle/spindles to go into, in the wheelbacks, then search your sprues to see if you have some that would fit? This can be used instead of buying styrene rod. If it's a little too wide sand it down then drill a hole for the kit's axle/spindle to go into  then you should be good to go!
PM me with your name/address etc & I'll see what I can do, ok champ?
Cheers Cliffo 

Well I got the primer down. I'm not using these wheels it's just for the picture, I'm planning on using the set of sidewinder wheels I wish I had a photo editing software so I could get a picture of it sitting on the wheels...

Ok Got to work on it a little today but couldn't do any body painting because it's thunderstorming.. I did decide to lower it though so I flipped the rear axle and i cut and dropped the front spindle.
