TY175: Front Wheel Strip

Stripped the front wheel this weekend:

I think (looking at parts book) there's a seal missing - I'll order one from All in pile for zinc plating.

My NOS brake plate

  Photos of wheel for reference when re-spoking it
Angle grinder killed the spokes pretty quickly
Alloy DID rim - with scratches and dings
Started to clean rim up with Scotchbrite...
...but then decided I'd smooth most of the worst dings, and get aqua blasted. Then painted to match the brake plate.

Along with the hub.
The component parts with new spoke set and bearings.
