started doing the lenco transmission, as well as re-doing the mid mount plate, as the plastic one did not cut it for me. also did the engine mount and both were made out of 0.5mm aluminium. the gearbox was turned out of chemiwood with the detailing done out of plastic. although most of this will be hidden under a blanket.

thanks jim. i have been trying to decide which set of wheels to use for this, as you have a great selection.
ok, got some more updates. began painting and building some sub assemblies. also used some etched parts from dirty modeller and waiting for parts from ted's modelling marketplace.

ok, so here are some more updates. took a mould of the valve covers and are ready to cast, but i have to wait for the release agent to arrive. but i did finish the original covers as you can see. as promised, here some pics of the body in progress. i used etched fasteners from dirt modeller and trimmed down the resin in some places, notice the black areas.

here are some more updates. i'm doing something a little different here with the ignition wires. i normally install them after most of the engine is done, but this time, i decided to put them in before the blower goes on. it made things easier as i can adjust the wires accordingly just by pulling them out of the mag, as they are just pushed in. also made the fuel valve on a design by John Teresi's Daytona Pro Mod model. started doing the gear shifters out of 0.5 aluminium. did two but the smaller one will end up as the shute release. the boot lid is being made from thick plastic.
