Nibbling away at the pesky rivet, until destructo & truck is freed ...  :thumb:

... I could then mod. the trucks for other projects & fit new wheelsets.

I love the 'Tri-ang' diecast "Old Skool" trucks & you can do all sorts of things with them.





I hope that gives someone a few ideas ...  ???

... the main one being BITE THOSE RIVETS OFF !
Not with yer teeth ... sharp side-cutters !!  :old dude:

Tried the nibbling trick with the rivets.


Find it a lot easier and faster, by jamming the truck and rivet solid,

then using a drill and suitable drill bit, drill out the rivet.


When the rivet lets go the truck will fall off,

and you also get a porthole for a ship model.


:glad:
