Plan A was a quick patch or two on one wheel and all is good. Bsssssst, Plan A goes out the window. Plan B is widen one narrow wheel and do a few more patches. That's what I'm working on now. With a homemade guide [pic one] I cut one narrow wheel and then cut the other narrow one an inch different. [pic two]. The guide kept me on the same wheel but wasn't a lot of help. The third picture is the two widest narrow wheel pieces together after some leveling of humps. Luckily, I cut the pieces slightly too wide, so I had something to work with.

You're getting it. Just tack it all the way around to make sure it is lined up before welding.

MM
X2 on what kenny c said. Looks like some good metal at the weld line. I love seeing the old school system come together. What are you doing for a second rim?
