Joe... those fire bottle turn out sweet man!! The RB motion anodized fittings look great. I need to pick up sone of those. this build is flat out awesome!! i also wanted to ask on the pro tech hard line did it cone in straight sections or rolled up and you had to straighten yourself?? Keep up the killer work Bro!



Chris, I edited my post. That is actually Ted's modeling hard line, sorry for the confusion.

Thanks for the plug, Joe.

Chris - I have soft aluminum line from .014" to .205" which is equal to 3/16" to 3 1/4" in 1/16 scale. My soft black line covers the same range which is either solid rubber or rubber tubing.

An easy way to make the hard line straight (also works for Pro Tech braided lines) is to place it on a smooth surface and roll your hand over it. Joe did a great job in routing the lines to make it look realistic.

Thx. Bill and Greg, Been slow going been so busy doing side jobs. I got the hand brake made and installed with linkage and also got the pedals and master cylinder installed. I Tried to make it look like the lines run through the chassis,I used some sandpaper to make the foot pad look like the grip tape they use. Now i can install the lower panels on the drivers side. Working on electrics and the selinoids the supply the shifter pods.

Back from the dead, I was finnally able to get my main electronics done. Man it really kicked my Butt with these tiny wires and nuts and bolts, but i was able to get through it and pretty happy with the way it turned out. All the stuff was scratch built except the obvious like wires and bolts, My battery ended up being a generic brand lol. I was unable to print the decal with good quality so it wasn't worth putting it on, I scratch built the battery hold down also. I turned down the starter selinoid that you can see next to the battery and also the little selinoids on for the shift controler, that is the one next to the big stuff and the race pak. Working on the trans and seat next, Trying to turn down the bell housing and trans, will see how that turns out. working through some problems with that.

Parts used:

Protech wiring and some fittings.
Ted's modeling black hose and resin hardware
RB motion hardware
Scale hardware
