Love the work on this. The interior detail is gorgeous, as is the chassis. Once again, I'm made to feel inadequate.

Well, Art, I must say that looks good. The extra attention to details and the effort pays off in a better model.

Finally, the chassis is done, ready for interior and body installation.  Added are complete hydraulic brake lines, coiumn gearshift linkage, fuel line, and emergency brake actuator cables with their appropriate armor sections.  Under the hood, all wiring is now complete, except for a pair of generator leads, which have to wait until the body is installed.

Engine bay:  (the battery is a scratchbuilt item, could not find a satisfactory 6V battery in any kit I have)
