Default Re-centering H1s

Re-centered my New H1s

Picked up 4 surplus H1 rims.
Made up a jig to mill off the center.
Then used dana 60 spindle and hub for a truing stand.
Tacked them together and welded them up.

Nice welds... I could not be that patient for ~4.5' of weld.

What inserts are you using?
Did you cut them down?

I got the rims and tires on .


And I did some mods to the tube work again.I was never really happy with the side profile before.Its tough making a 4 seater look like a 2 seater LOL.
One of these days Im going to build a new rig........

The plan for the back is when the 4 people in my family actually all go in the rig at the same time (maybe twice a year).When this happens I am will be building a bolt on rear roll bar to protect the kidos ,when the seat is in.Plus this will be a nice selling feature I think when the time comes.

later Jeff and thanks for the complements
