I wanted to get your feedback before I told you what I did. I've been experimenting, on and off , in my quest for realism.
The reason they look so real is becuse they are.
I used stainless steel (which they are in real life) and I applied heat into them (just like real life).
I made a video of the process while I was making them. I'll have it out shortly, but I'd be glad to answer any questions in the meantime.
Thanks for looking and for your comments, guys.
Here's a shot of a few test pieces while I was working on them.

I found companies that will bend really small tubing, but they want a minimum order or just plain lots of money. I'm still researching that end.
Thanks for looking in, Goat.

It's going to be a job to drill into these, for the sensors. I'll have to make a larger 'jig' to center the bit and use lots of lube.
Thanks for keeping track of me and for your comments.

I changed it in the original post above and here it is: http://s1256.photobu...le/TedsModeling
I commented the brake lever photos and will add comments to new uploaded photos from here on.
I'm currently plumbing the fuel and oil lines now and will have an update soon.

Dave - I appreciate all of the photos you've provided to us all. They certainly have added to my research for this particular car.

The small diameter wiring is part of Pro Tech's Small Detail Wire and you can find it along with other gauge wires, braided lines, hard lines and hoses at my new online store.
I specialize in 1/16 scale and larger, but many of the detailing items can be used at any scale.
I have some tables on the site that show 1:1 sizes in three different scales (1/16, 1/12 and 1/8).
I'm just opening the store and in the middle of stocking the shelves, so bare with me while it's expanding.
The store is at http://www.tedsmodel...arketplace.com/
I have a video of the wiring you see on this FC.
