My current project is a '50s era traditional '40 Ford coupe hot rod and I've been detailing the Cadillac engine (Revell engine kit) with tri-carbs/mesh filters, linkage, fuel lines, plumbing etc. Then, I decided to make a handmade brass heavy duty rad to cool this large engine.....it's been time consuming but fun. 
The model should be complete in the next few days, and the fuel lines will line up evenly once I can mount the fuel block to the firewall.

Clifford that is just gorgeous.  And I think that a PE grille would really look cool in front of that gorgeous engine and radiator... (Just my opinion).
