One question the tool that is screw on the valve stem there is one of those in the tools that my dad had. That is the first one of them I have seen outside of the one in his tools. Do you know are these still available or are they just an old tool that you need to be in the right place to find them. The use of cardboard is an idea I will try to remember the next time I paint some wheels.
The valve tool is still available, may have to go to NAPA to find one. I have 3 and love them.
