I got a lil done tonight not much of a update because the wife and i went whale watching in Santa Barbra this weekend. i hope you enjoy!!!

in this pic you can see i was able to make the pressure fittings and attach the oil line to the pan. the kool thing about this trans kit is , it allows you to make your braided hoses from communication cable

man! we saw at least 12 differant Blue whales and probably 20 or more Humpbacks, and hundreds of common dolphins, Santa Barbra is pretty much home to blues and humpbacks.

I wanted to share with you some progress, I was able to put the brake disc together and this was no simple task as the disk is made up of 3 main photo etched parts that need to be soldered together. The Kit gives you two version possisbilities and I chose to build it with the real threaded knock offs. I also opted not to paint the parts as per the instructions , instead i polished the metal parts for a more realistic piece. The shocks were also a nice piece of work as they are made from white metal and photo etch the only kit piece is the spring which had to be cut to size. I hope you enjoy!

That's crazy, the calipers have seperate pads?!?! All you need now is some scale brake fluid and that sucker would stop on a dime!

Fantastic work! A few years ago Jairus did a multi-part build of this kit in MCM.I don't know if you'll get anything out of it but it might be good read. That upgrade kit sure looks like it was worth it!
