Have it rolled a little tight , consider trimming the spoke pointing
down and then start with the short spoke pulling the bar into shape and
welding as needed , this will produce an oval wheel with extra room

It does indeed :)

I'm pretty much the same.
If something breaks my first reaction (actually, my second. My first is to
offer up a few choice expletives) is to work out what tools I need to get
the problem sorted. I usualy only discover that it would have been cheaper
and easier to simply replace the item some time after I've repaired it.

Know that feeling as well :)

Fair enough to both of you. I still roll my eyes when manufacturers use
"SRS Airbags" as a marketing feature, when they wouldn't dream of
promoting "PRS Seatbelts" or somesuch. I suppose it just makes the
gullible and ignorant think that an everyday item is somehow special or
unique so that they'll buy that car!
