Here some construction pics of my new Cummons Century wheel modeled after old Silver Dollar Shows I been working on all summer. Cleaning most of the parts up till now. Been using all purpose bondo on some areas which need smoothing. Been waiting till our season ended here on Long Island so I can start paint on Monday. Will have new pics sometime next week as this wheel takes shape. I also added pics of the 1970 Cummons Loop-O-Plane refurbishment which I purchased off E-Bay. The Loops was completely sanded down and will be painted lime green with white booms and red lights and arrows.

Enjoy Yall!

Looks great Sean. How did you like trying to get the century wheel towers and the wheel aligned perfectly with the trailer from all angles? I dont care to ever go through that again LOL.

Found these clamps at home depot to help keep the wheel square with the ride yet I also found if I let the ride stay clamped together over night the metal will settle making it easy to see how the parts will hold together within the future. Its been fun yet Im ready to make this baby bright with some paint. I just been painting little parts here and there. The front stairs is painted and the gondolas await some pink following a clear coat. The finished product will look much like Ryans yellow wheel yet with a different skirt and gondolas.
