This is the most comprehensive description of a minor wheel renovation I have seen. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Morris-Minor ... SwDXFcpeRa

I guess the price reflects the use of a "mallot". I've searched a number of tool suppliers and just haven't been able to find a mallot anywhere. :-?

All credit for a nice looking finish, but a specialist restorer can offer a fully prepped, painted and balanced wheel for a lower price.

If he spent a whole weekend cleaning and painting one wheel perhaps someone should discretely tell him about sand blasting.

Or even a "maillot"! :-?
