    Lotus restoration and rebuild
    Here's a 1/32 Lotus body by Strombecker I bought on eBay for $2.00. It's been a year since it's been done but thought I would share it here. Chris4q is my inspiration...his cars are immaculate!

    I have a Sherline 4000 lathe and a HF Micro Mill. The Sherline lathe is absolutely perfect, and is a very precise piece of machinery. The HF Micro Mill appears to have been manufactured by drunks. Absolutely horrendous. Tolerances in the millimeters. I plan on selling the mill to buy the Sherline Milling Column instead. Here's a great link of a few hours of free video on machining:

    I have tons of other machining resources...let me know what you need.
