My spats won't fit 3" wheels so I printed some. Strip very soggy at the moment

Hi Mike - No problem but   - they are 34mm wide (30mm internally)  - so you will probably need longer axles.
I initially gave them 10 mm clearance above the wheel - which I now realise is probably a bit too much. So redesigning tonight with 5mm clearance.
Pm me your e mail & I'll send you the current one & the new one tomorrow. They are drawn in Fusion 360.

Hi Mike. Have designed a MK2 which is much easier to fit & removes in a jif. Will send if you want.
