KenFM(Ken) - Great looking fleet of trucks, thanks for posting. Love you colour selections. Your little people look great also, nice touch with the V-neck t-shirt on the red fellow, I'll have to use that idea myself.
Couple of questions for you:
Looking at your Play Pals - do I see a spacer between the wheels and the body on these vehicles?
Is that a spacer or part of the wheel?
Like your paint/drying rack with the screws - how do you prevent the components from being blown off while spray painting?
I see you also like to use plastic storage bins.
So, where is this fleet of vehicles going?

Thank you so much for your comments. To answer your questions:-

I found that the wheels without spacers could get glue on the inside and stick to the bodywork. I purchased 200 from ebay at a cost of £7 ($12) that is 3.5p (6cents) I have used the spacers on all truck wheels. On the play pals and smaller wheels they also look great.
I got the idea for the drying rack from the Forum using a spot of glue from a hobby glue gun on the side to be glued when dry the glue can be just picked off.
I made some small colour sticks and stacked them in the order I thought would be best for that toy before spraying.
I want to build up a large mixture of toys over the summer months and try my selling skills at craft fares over Xmas and next summer.

That sounds like a good price for the wheels. 
Is this e-Bay supplier only for the UK and do they supply a variety of sizes?
Would you be kind enough to post his e-Bay listing name so others can take a look at his stock and pricing? Thank you in advance.

KenFM (Ken) - Thanks for the info. I though you were buying the wheels also.
This should help our UK toymakers.
