    Hi Greg,

    The rod are just small pipes the rod end,s are aftermarket (stil saving for a lathe so i can make them my self)
    The pulley's are made from jewelers screwdrivers they have those ribs and they are just right.

    So hello guys and girls,
    Ok it's been a while since the last update had some more importent things to do. (sorry to kept you waiting)
    This week i did a lot of work to the rod i finished the Chassis (only the drive shafts).
    Fit the body and busy working on the interior.
    well here some photo's.

    Painted the wheels with Alclad chroom.

    Put some Knock off spinners (like the real one had).

    Mounted the engine and wheels (like i said the axels still has to be fit).

    Here i,m preparing the louvres for the side intake, this are decals made out of resin ,stranges but worked fine.

    And the result.

    I saw the rod had a ghost at the back carpet, so i first draw it then filled it.

    The interior i used vilt i don't know how you call it in english but it worked out great.

    This is how far it is at the moment.
    Still some small details and placing the aluminium plate's and lights then it should be finished.
    I have a small suprise here for the Rod will show you when it's ready.
    See you

    Hi there,
    The rod has some color now.

    First i put some base then i found out the body wasn't that smoot after all (see arrows).
    So put some more plaster and start sanding

    Then finally the color
    Now i can start making the inside and work on the decals.
    Ok you guys behave and keep on building.
    See you next update.

    This means pic up the Pac rod and start building YEAH.
    Tonight i finished the exhaust it only need some little adjustment but i can do that when the engine is fitted.

    Now i can start finishing the engine and drive shafts.
    But first,
    Working on the body , so i made a air intake (i think thats where the radiator sits)getting the right
    size was a challange but after some measurements i got it right (i think) put some bondo now the other side and then start sanding.
