Hi All,

Not exactly in half , but just the face of one.

I have an integrale wheel that, (like the sad git I am), I would like to hang on the wall. If not in the house then in the garage.

I need to slice off the front of it but am not keen at going at it with a Jigsaw, as I like my fingers, arms and legs too much.

I have tried a few metal working places near me (east london), but no luck so far.

Any ideas of who might be able to do this ?

Many thanks

Hi Carlos

Glad I'm not the only daft one! I had one of my 16" evo wheels in the rockery for ages, very nice it looked too.

It had cracked on the inside rim of the wheel after a visit to the Isle of Man. Now they are so scarce its back in the garage just in
case it can ever be repaired.

Regards

On that basis just knock a circular hole in the wall and mount the wheel as a window.porthole - sounds a lot cheaper and retains value!

Hi Steve,
I take it you have an Alpine between each section, what about a photo?

That reminds me, I thought we were going to get a gallery for the photos at some time?

Yes - I'm halfway through installing but need some expert help. Should be done some time soon(ish).

steve we often see cracked wheels in work and there is a very good engineering company around the corner from me who repair them, they do a first class job so hang on to it!!! basically they grind the crack out to a V shape and tig weld it up, then they sand it back down, so far NONE have come back ! so they do a good job

I guess since Lancia wheels are so "soft", ie, they deform easily, they are not heat treated.  So welding should be just fine.

Thanks for the update Harvey, afraid I wouldn't be any help on that score. Embarrassed

Thankyou Richard,

Spoke to Mike at Barnby Engineering in rochester, and what a nice man, he can slice the wheel in half for 40.

Thanks again guys.
