Thanks guys!

Finally got around to casting copies of the Weber carb I made.  Each one is two parts, right now…  Still lots of hardware to machine and details to add.

Once I got the rear body section mounting points established so I could put it on and take it off the frame and have it line up the same every time, I went back to setting up the rear suspension.  I made the upper links that determine where the rear wheels would reside in relation to the wheel well openings.  More brass…

I also made the outer CV joints and stubs to mount the rear rotors out of aluminum.

The CV boots will be soft and dyed black like the tires.  The mold has already been made from this aluminum master I turned for them.

Thanks Guys!

 

The fuel filler is made of brass, aluminum and some soft rubbery plastic that was a tube I had lying around from a paint brush bristle protector.  Heating over a candle and bending it like sprue worked well.

The filler will be installed in the trunk.

Thank you Scott.

I cast the CV boots out of a rubber-like elastomeric resin and made half-shafts out of brass.  Here is one CV/axle assembly and a “loose boot”.  The inboard CV joints are already installed on the pumpkin.

Here are both sides installed into the car.  There is enough flexibility for the rear suspension to work.  Top:

You?   Throwing the towel..??

 

You are way too modest.  Your work is as amazing as his...   I've been doing models since 1980, and I would never imagine attempting building something like you both do. Your work is amazing. I was even surprised to discover another dude that makes something on the same level as your cuda.

 

Yes, Mark's work is magnificent....And so you are.... ;)
