Default Shado 2 Axles...

Hi,

I am currently trying to renovate a SHADO 2, but the axles have seen better days, they are either rusty, bent or both, plus I'd like to remove them to be able to paint it properly...

Does anyone know if I can get new axles or what could I use to make some please...

Many thanks...

Andy...

Brass rod would do the job. If you used the hollow type, you could sleeve and superglue dressmaker's pins into them so they looked correct from the outside.
Aluminium would do the job also, but not be as strong.
