  1. Bent spoke Kelseys

    Finally got around to designing some wheels for those Buicks and Caddys. They will be 15 X 7 with a separate hub cap. should fit most kit tires. Some kit hubcaps can probably be adapted too.

    Wow, they look great even if I do say so myself! Please post more pictures when you paint them.

    Are there some specific kits that you would use these wheels on? It helps to have a kit wheel in hand so perfect fit is insured.
  4. Dragster front wheels

    Yes Auto Air goes o very thin with excellent coverage. It's a two part process, Auto Air gloss black followed by Auto Air quick silver. Do a google search and see some of the videos of this stuff.

    The hub caps from various Fords fit as do the tires. I'm considering some additional vintage wire wheels. Many hours go into creating the 3D art for such a wheel so it my be a while.

    Wow, so sorry to hear this. some Shapeways users do short soaks in alcohol. The distortion of the spokes may self correct if you let them sit for several days. Shapeways recommends water based paints for their resin parts I always use Createx/ Createx auto air. The specific paint is quicksilver. It's fantastic stuff. As for cleaning, try a good soak in Dawn and water or Simple Green and water. That's it for cleaning.

    I designed a motorcycle wheel for vintage front engine dragsters. Should I offer this on my Shapeways site? Snapshot from Fusion 360
