I have 3 photo albums of old pictures, but I have only scanned a few onto a computer as of now. I need to find some time to scan them into my computer.

As a matter of fact, in the days these were around, tons of them had spiders, especially on the drive axles and a lot of them on the steering axle too. The 2 hole steel discs sort of replaced these today. I have seen some recent trucks with spokes on, but they aren't common nowadays.

KJ, looks like you got another outstanding KW there. I think the paint job is super eye-catching and yet as replica stock as you can get. Bare with me here, this is a true compliment. As I personally believe the Alcoa Corp was put on this earth to make spoke wheels
Obsolete, your KW put a BIG ding in my beloved ten hole alloys. Your spokes look GREAT. They add such character. Well Done.

spokes rule

Spoken by someone who has never had to try and true them up......... While I love the look of them when they are painted clean and maintained they are He#& to work on.

Had to take a little break from building, but I got a lot done last night and tonight. I just have to finish the air shield on the roof, add the pogo stick and air hoses, and a few other small details.

This is a beautiful Kenny whopper. NIce build. I never thought about using the airbags form the snap kit. I have 2 glue bomb rebuilds that could use the same treatment.
