Why not let the supplier know of this . Even offer to ship a wheel for test. Then the collect ones would be viable.Be a good R&D project for service/Yankee.

so I received the 12” MQQN trimrings from Japan and thanks to a close Crosley member, Paula Whitney and her son Scott, I was able to borrow a crosley wheel to put these trimrings to the test. The results are this:
1) super fast shipping out of Japan
2) excellent customer service
3) i felt the quality was great
Now for the bad news:
1) they went on fine, but didn’t quite fit
2) it sat about 1/4” above the rim-maybe slightly less
3) from the side view- they look fantastic!
it appears the inner lip of the trimring is bottoming out on the lower lip of the wheel. a person could trim the inner lip of the trimring about 1/8” to bring the trimring in closer to the wheel- but it would take a steady hand with a grinder.
All in all, it was disappointing that they came within a 1/4” to being a complete winner in my book, but the slight gap was a setback in the search for replacement crosley trimrings.
Like i said, they look fantastic from the side but you can see the gap looking down at the wheel from above or to the side. i feel they are acceptable for a daily driver but for show, i’m not so sure. I personally, will probably grind down the inner lip of the trimring to help the appearance but I have OCD and i tend to be too discriminating on something when others feel what i see is just fine.
I purchased 5 and therefore, have an extra to ship around to other crosley members who want to see for themselves- so if your that kind of person, send me a private email. all i ask is you pay for the shipping-which is a lot cheaper than from Japan!
Doesn’t anyone out there have a NOS set of crosley trimrings that need to go to a desperate man-me!?!?

Re: Great New Crosley Video on YouTube from M. Park Hunter

Out here in Cali 65mph on the Frwy is standard. You have to have a very road worthy crosley. Awesome video. Thanks

Thanks for the compliments. It was fun to do the video. I’ve never been in a Crosley anywhere near 60mph, so I’ll take L.E.’s word on that 70mph top end!

I would be happy to pay for a Trim Ring and shipping. I have a friend (ex engineer with quite a home machine shop) who said he would be willing to help me try to figure out a way to fit these.
Let me know..

Thanks all for the well wishes.  Am alive & well, but sore.  Catheters suck....coughing sucks.....I had a giant prostate, but cancer was caught very early & the surgery went very well.  I go back next week to see if the catheter can come out.

Mike,  the worst is pretty much over.  have you been doing Kegel's exercises?  if not, learn how and get on it, they really help a bunch!  8.5 years post surgery and hanging on. need an email buddy to grumble to, please feel free to contact me, we can share stupid nurse stories. catheters suck---AMEN brother...getting it out is like Christmas to an 8 year old.    Paul Rinehart

Thanks Paul.  Day nurse was a ex iraq vet built like a football player.  nice guy....night nurse....not so much but in all, not a bad experience.  Glad to hear you are doing well.  I think I have to wait for the catheter to come out before I can do the excersizes.  I started practicing before the surgery.  

Re: Wish me luck!

paul
 

no problem Mike, I can be a cheerleader if you need. tell you stories to make you giggle.  are you perchance an in country Nam vet?  if so get a claim started as soon as you can move around, do it online and gather the paperwork to back you up, Agent Orange is accepted as a cause and a claim goes thru quickly.  I have combat PTSD and warned the nurses to knock on the door before entering. it seemed that every time a night nurse walked by I was awake and waved at them. one poor young girl became afraid of me, wouldn't come do vitals alone. I told her that if she knocked and woke me up we were fine, just not to walk in and surprise me.
yeah, I've been called an instigator before... get well quick it's getting to be Crosley weather fast.   Paul
