  1. More done to the Alfa, the underneath is finished so on to the top ( those nuts are 1.4mm the hole I drilled in them is 0.3mm) the drilling was easy threading that wire through the hole was another story. 

    I'm kind of wishing I hadn't started it, on the other hand it does make quite a difference to the overall look.

    The exhaust is not fixed I just wanted to see how it looked.

    The radiator to bulkhead brace I made out of copper wire the thing supplied in the kit is so flimsy (the only bad bit in the whole kit.

  2. More done to the Alfa added detail to the firewall (put the rubber strip round where the bonnet goes and some wires) added (or as much as I can see) the throttle linkage (not sure where to route the throttle linkage) all the pics I can find finish where it is now, obviously it must end up at the peddle but no idea how it goes from where it is now to the peddle.

    Loving the detail on the grill (this from a man that hates PE

  3. More done to this, I can't find any decent pics of the fuel injection system on this so I've invented my own (its only really to fill space as the stacks are too far apart and it looks silly)

    I decided to ditch the carbs (too much wrong with them )

    The kit comes with fuel injection as an option I thought I would go with that, tbh a don't know which is worse, still I'm stuck with it now, hopefully I can improve on what the kit supplied (still won't be anything like accurate but maybe look interesting.
