    Wanted : Mego 8" scale Spider Car Web Trap rods

    Hi Guys

    I recently got a Mego 8" scale Spider-Car but it's missing the two rods holding the web trap. Is there a way to find some or is someone doing repros? Or does anyone have a cunning method for replacing them?
    Thanks

    try using red drinking straws. or you can just buy a wood dowel of the correct thickness and paint them red

    Thanks!
    I've been thinking about drinking straws as well as an alternative.
    Currently have two plastic rods which are the right color, but they're too thin and it wobbles a bit.

    i used straws in mine. cheap and easy to cut. it's not like it is being played with, it's only for display purposes. you could always add a little tape around the ends if it wobbles
