Right again Jeff!
Oh well I'll eat [the] crow[-bar] it took me to pry these @!5&!ng split
rims open...
I still have three solid wheels back in Normandy. two came with my Jeep
trailer and the third one was the spare on my Jeep when it came out of
French Army surplus... I had to replace these perfectly good solid rims by
so-so combat ones...Arrgh!
