Just a quick update, got my carbs yesterday from mad modeling and I have to say I'm very happy with them. There was absolutely no clean up needed. Also I want to add fuel lines but the pictures I've found look like the fuel line goes into the linkage side of the carb is that right? Any suggestions?

Got a little further on the engine. Started working on the linkage and also started running the fuel lines. Questions and comments welcome, thanks for looking :)

Looks great! The interior is incredible! Good work! I just got that kit, but it won't  look as good as yours.

Finally got the frame masked off and painted black and added some of the suspension parts with home made springs. Added a little bit of chalk for a slightly weathered look too. I used the stock tires and wheels, painted them the body color and a little bit of dull coat to knock the shine down. Also a quick picture of a mock up with the body, thanks for looking :)

Nice.

 

I had to trim the bottom of the windscreen to get the interior tub to sit right and mount the engine as far forward as it would go.

If I didn't do that then it all still fitted together but the wheels were to far forward in the wheel arches.

You've obviously checked it all fits right before gluing in the "glass" yes?

No but the glass will pop right out without a problem if I need to trim it.

Couple shots of the almost completed motor. Just have to add the coil, paint the transmission, and put the oil pan and fan on. Thanks for looking
