    Very nice!

    I did a refinish on my factory Web-Spokes a few years ago and thought that there were a lot of bolts in those. Yours look like they have twice as many! :crazy:

    Yep, 36 per wheel @26 ft. lbs each = 936 ft. lbs / wheel.... Frickin wore me out when the shop was 100F @ 95% humidity..... Tried to do each wheel in the morning before it got crazy.... I had to remove 144 assembly bolts and then install 144 assembly bolts.
