The NOS and CO2 bottles are now in place, wired and plumbed. Started working on the batteries, with a scratchbuilt unit and I in the middle of making a mould of it. When that is set, I can cast two in resin.

I now have the seat installed together with the seat harness. I scratchbuilt an electrical box and brake resevoir and have the batteries installed and wired. I also made the hand brake lever and chute release lever, both are bolted in using 0.8mm nuts and bolts. pedals are now in place and I am just working on the linkages.

Steve - looks as busy and crowded in that interior as the real thing. Fantastic job!

Man, this model is packed with detail, it will be sort of a shame to cover it up with body panels.

Ok, got lots done on this beast. detailed the rear end and made a couple of changes to. Added detail to the rear hubs, (brake calipers are next). started detailing the oil and gas tanks. Turned the oil pump and pulley. Added some fuel lines to the engine and installed the front struts. I have mocked up the front discs/hubs as I haven't decided whether to use five stud or spindle mount wheels, I also adjusted the ride height at the front so that the new headers have ground clearance.

Really awesome, Steve.  It's interesting that you put the 90 degree AN fittings in before the hose. Do you find it easier to make the connections this way instead of having both ends of the hose fitted with AN fittings to start with?

Thanks Ted. My right arm suffered an injury a couple of years ago and it has never been the same, so for this project, I did find it easier to attach the hose and ends to the part first. Although, the oil pump has already been installed, but I still have to get more AN fittings. 

 

I will be after a set of tires for this, maybe next week I will order them once I have decided on the rears.
