Any more on this? I'm going to try building this one in the upcoming 24hr build off, so I'm just cruising '56 build threads.

A most superb build! Like your lathe work outstanding!

I am most curious as to what it takes to do that kind of work?

How difficult is it? I have seen many here that do it.

I totally agree with your color choices and your foil work is immacculet, as is the decal work!

Simply stunning work over all. How did you form the front axle?

Hope to see the interior and the finished build soon

Thank You for sharing it with Us here!

Later

Russ

;)

Way past time for am update, you guys know how it goes some times life gets in the way.
 
I finished the interior and installed it, several scratch built items such as shifter and boot, fire extinguisher and the gas brake and clutch pedals. next I will work on the suspension. This kit will be finished in a month or so, at least I hope so. All comments welcome.

That interior looks good Robert, nice job on the scratch built stuff, especially the shifter and boot. The tach looks scratch built too, or , at least aluminum.

Thanks Gene, no the tack was a detail master part I think, the rest of the stuff was scratch built.

Thanks Rob, thanks Russell sorry for some reason I missed your question. here is a pic of the machine I use to make my parts.

Russell I don't think it's all that hard to make these simple parts but the machine is expensive, the pic shows my Unimat lathe it's from the 1960's, I paid $400.00 for it not so cheap, it is portable the weight is about 20 pounds and the length is about 21 inches. You can get better modern machines for a little more but some of them weigh more than 3 times as as much.

Finished build is in the under glass section.
