    help with 1/12th tamiya Wolf WR1 steering
    I am building a Tamiya 1/12th Wolf WR1. I have been thrilled with the quality of the kit so far. There is a place where the shaft from the steering wheel is supposed to connect to the steering rack. There are two thin shafts with a rubberized sleeve sliding over them to connect them. The shafts don't seem to go into the sleeve far enough. Should I try to drill the sleeve out some. Am i missing something? Any help would be appreciated.

    I work with the son of one of the Fisher Brothers who sponsered Jim Reed car. I had a few photos of the car, and did the best I could. I had to fill the grove down the rear quarters where there was suposed to be chrome. I changed the wheels, wired and plumbed the engine. I left the back seat inb, and didn't put in a roll bar, because that is how the car looked in the pictures. I think that is the way chevy sent the car, and then it would have been modified before it was raced. The car is suposed to have a b pillar. That is over my head. I did make some decals for the first time. This is actualy the first model I have made in decades. Let me know what you think.
