The eccentric bolts on the left rear wheel of my Model B will not tighten the clips as tightly against the rim as they should. The result is that the clips slip on the rim slightly and are wearing shiny spots so the problem will only get worse over time.
My question: Short of getting a new rim, what is the best fix to the condition? I have thought about two solutions: 1. Have the clips welded up and ground back down to fit the rims - this may be expensive. 2. I have some sheet aluminum that I have considered cutting into strips and using as a spacer between the wheel clips and the rim. What are your thoughts on the problem?
Thanks for your help!
