    Oh, that's right. I remember your post where you presented that to him.

    What a great gesture, Curt. I understand Tony is not doing so well these days...

    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.

    Thanks, guys!
     
    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.

    It's a winner, John! Amazing, especially considering how much scratchbuilding there is.

    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.








    Thanks for looking!
