I recently got a Slot.it Toyota 88C (White kit, SICA19Z) which came with, of course, hub inserts . I would like to paint these hub inserts another colour but do not know how to remove them from hub. Can anyone advise ?
Thanks,
Steve

You should be able to remove them by pushing an axle through the hub. If this doesn't work try imersing the wheel in hot water, then using the axle trick, thermal expansion will do the rest.

Axle through the hub worked for rear wheels but not for fronts which are press-on type rims. I suppose using a smaller diameter axle would have worked here but I did not have one to use. Just masked off the outside (chrome finish) of rim and painted the inserts in situ.
