    Opening out the splashers was slow work using needle files.
    Using a power tool struck me as potentially too uncontrollable.
    And you need to be extra careful at the front; I still took a bit too much off!

    My advice is to plan on minimum sideplay on the front wheels.
    Then file, continuously measuring to that minimum clearance.

    I warn you that I am not particularly happy with my result.
    The slow-running performance is not good.
    Maybe you will get better running using the Hornby brass bearings reamed out rather than running in mazak;
    I missed that conversion option!

    Good Luck!
