Bart, I didn't hollow out the bell, I need a new chuck my old one doesn't hold tight enough . I did put it on my drill press and drill holes in it to lighten it up a bit.
Shifters are done , I will have some pictures tonight of it all in the chassis.

After pulling out what's left of my hair i have the trans installed, unfortunately i had to take my gas pedal back out because i could not get the clutch can past it. It's all good now and reinstalled, I couldn't make the connectors like the 1:1 uses so i just used some brass nuts. I could have made the reverse shifter a little closer to the drivers side, where it's at now you could never reach it from the seat. I turned the push buttons down on the lathe and hit them with some 1000 grit so they look like brused aluminum. You can't see it but i had to put the clutch can decal on the drivers side, all in all i'm very happy with the way it turned out. Once i find some 1/16th buckles that i think will look good i will do the seat, going to work on the rear end next and try and get the tubs installed. My goal is to be able to show it at NNL east 2013.
Used Ted's modeling black rubber line
RB motion nuts and stainless rod
Scale hardware brass nuts.
Also had Jim machine me up some Lamb calipers for the rear. He even put the name on them.

Need some help guys, Had a setback and hope it's not going to turn into a major one. i had my wheel tubs stored in an air tight container and the edges of the carbon decal in some spots are turning white, looks like maybe the clear is still eating at them? Is it possible being in an air tight container did this?. The carbon decals on the chassis are fine so far and there were all done with in weeks of each other except the chassis was never stored in a container. I used scale motor sports decals and model masters laquer clear. Now, how do i strip these to redecal them, can i use the purple pond? if so will that mess up my glue joints? or do i just sand them down best i can and try redecaling them? Make news tubs really isn't an option i want to use as these fit to good.
