New sleeve nuts ordered and wheels dropped of for paint and a recondition. Just a refresh no diamond cut finish just a acid clean. A mask off and paint.

is 12mm enough? Think I will be back to the machine shop to machine the seats down 4mm so the boss thickness is the same as the sleeve nuts.

Is this faff typical of fitting revolutions?
I was thinking of fitting them to our project but seems its not straight forward.

It is not now as they have changed the fitting. 
if I had not decided to have the allycats I would not have had to change much. The 13s revs used a 50mm center boss. The bolts are NLA so I decided to use the new 46mm length 5/8 ones. Hopping I would not have to change much.

 

my issues are all to do with doing things my way 30 years ago.
