    No no, I don´t use the spray can...i´m only using the paint...sorry if I was little unclear. For painting I always use a high quality Iwata airbrush.

    It´s actually gold metallic...but you are right, it looks a little bit green in the pics.
    The color, "Auto-K/Multona" Gold metallic #0563 are like an base-color and need a clear coat or two, to make it shine and glitter.
    I don´t know if Auto-K spraycans are avalible in US or if they are only availble in europe.

    Hi all,
    finally I got some spare time for this project...so here is a small update.

    Fueltank from DM...they look great, but I added a rubber O-ring on the outside the bracket.


    The grille shell and the fueltank glued together... Mr Vader assist with the small bolts, washers and nuts.




    thanks for looking in...

    Just a small update.
    It´s a little bit tricky to build a race chassie inside this little Vette body...I hope I will finish this one some day...

    The progress so far...











    Thanks for looking in..

    It´s alive!!

    After some accurate measurement I decided to build a jig for the new chassie. I think thats the right way for the best result.

    Medical tape work just fine. It gives a nice texture and structure. You can also use the tape as a blowerbag, seatbelts and window netting...here´s a pic of my Lenco-bag.

    Update on this ride. Hmm...last post 06 dec 2012.

    Hilborn buildup from Evergreen rods and photoetch washers. I made one master, then made a mold and cast a couple in resin.



    basic engine parts...



    ...it was a little bit tricky to get the smooth rounded shape on the rollcage, but finaly after some tryes, i got it right.

    edit: almost forget the window net...

    The pullies was custom made for me and I used them as a master for casting.
    Here is a pic of the resin product.


    The belt are made from 5 layers of thin ImagePerfect vinyl. The belt is just an experiment...so time will show if it works..
