Brad, thank you. No, the tire decals didn't come in the kit. Actually, no decals came with the kit. I got the body decals from inycals.net as well as the front tire lettering. The rear tire logos needed to be a little bit larger than come with the Indycals Indy Car tire logos, but I happened to have some Slixx decals that fit the bill perfectly.
Curt, Patrick Galleguillos and I are going to put our F5000 cars together at the NNL West and welcome others to join us. So maybe you can bring your Tony A-Z car, and any others you may have built and share some table space with us! Here are some pics of the wheels and tires. I thought that the rear wheel had a little too large of a lip on it, so I cut it down on the lathe, and drilled out the center.
I made some wheel nuts with some Pro Tech fittings and aluminum tube.
I didn't take any pictures of this part, but I made new front tires. The F5000 cars have a pretty low-profile tire, and this kit represents that, but they are maybe just a little too small. So I took an Indy car tire, molded it, then shaved it down and cast two halves that I mated together with some styrene spacers to widen it. Then I made a new mold and made the two fronts. Here are the completed tires and wheels.
I'm still plugging away at this one, trying to make the Grand National Roadster Show this weekend. A while back, I scratch-built a fuel pump that comes off the back of the distributor. I finished it up so I could plumb the fuel lines to the injectors. I also made the fittings for the injector tubes.
