Probably micro managing here by showing small parts, but here is the manual overide for the Torqueflite trans and where it is located on the tail piece.

Mold that was made for both the Mopar and Olds rear ends. Soon I have all the parts I need to get the Jewel's rear put together.

This is the mold for the various brake parts that I have done and the brake drum parts are included here as well as disc brake parts.

When I started out disc brakes seemed like the proper parts that would be used on the Jewel T Altered, but late found out that in fact drum brakes were used instead. So, just for grins and giggles I am showing what will not appear on the build. Too bad as these would have look very nice. All is not lost as I usually make molds of everything I do and will find another build for these later.

Mark... beautiful work. I am enjoying seeing the molds and how you set it up. Those disk brakes are just killer. Keep up the great work.

Brad, any of my parts are available for those that are interested. Once I pull a few from the mold and make sure they meet expectation I begin to put together a stash. I want to be able to put together a package that will include the rear ends as well as individual caliper/drum sets. Hopefully, that won't take too long.

 

Chris, Thanks for your encouragement. Everytime I look at your page I get all kinds of ideas, just don't have enough time to get to all of them. Your build is intense.

Molds are complete and here are the resin parts for the rear end. Also included are the wheels I developed and with some mods will be using them for this build. Next step is to add the attachment ears to the rear end so the ladder bars can be properly placed on the frame. This will help me locate the rest of the uprights for the frame.

Impressive....most impressive!   Give me hope of re-bodying my 1/16th scale Phantom II Continental and build my Jo-Han/Monogram Duesenberg Coupe!

More progress getting the rear end assembly done. Once the rod ends were complete the mount plates could be developed. I wanted the rear end mount brackets to be folded or supported and this is how they look, done on one side. Next pix will show the rear end in position.

Working up the 12-spoke wheels and have the first half completed. Created a master spoke, then did a mold to get six exact copies and prepped a Revell dragster front wheel rim to accept the spokes. I still have to cut off the back side of the rim and then size the half wheel before doing yet another mold. Putting two halves together will yield the 12-spoke I'm after.

WOW! 

Makes my cars look like I used Play-doh to build them out of.

You can of course feel free to send me those brake set ups you aren't using :)

I really like those front wheels so far.

Awesome workmanship as usual.

Great looking work, Mark!  Doing those spokes in photo etch would be another way of approaching that part of the project, if they were done in heavy enough material.  Cool!  Are you still planning on the Heartland show?

Mark,

 Those are some killer parts your making.  The rear end/rear suspension is looking very cool!

Scott, I'm planning on being there, but this project will only be on display in-progress form. I'm trying to get it on wheels as a rolling chassis at least. If time permits I will have the driveline together and in place too, but don't count on it. See you there on Sunday.

 

Dave and Michael  - Thanks for the kind words.

Great!  I'm looking forward to seeing both you and your project.  I'm hoping for the same with my Fairmont but the way this week's going, I'm not going to hold my breath... LOL

The mold for the 12-spoke wheels was successful and this is what they look like in completed form. Two halves together, twisted for the offset and these are fitted in the Revell tire without any mount surface adjustment. Some minor sanding may be done before they are glued together though.
