    Thanks Brad! I'll bring back the "Big Ruler" for some shots. We have ignition, wires… They will be routed properly after the carbs are installed. Also added the ground point for the battery, the clutch hydraulic line and some more oil lines.

    The headlights have been installed and wired. I made bulbs for the parking lights too. Radiator is installed. More electrical wiring getting done…

    The beginning of the spare tire hold down. PE frame and milled resin handle; brass hinge pin.

    The steering shaft was threaded through the header and into the rack & pinion. Then the scratch-built dash was installed.

    The welting for the fenders was cut from flat black vinyl. Taillights are installed and the fenders mounted to the body. The same material as used to make the welting was cut for the stone guards.

    I decided I could do better. So I made a new flange and nut with broached splines so the flange will fit onto the shaft like a real one.

    Crush sleeve and mounting nut for steering wheel/shaft.
  8. LHD Gulf Seven

    Phillips head stove bolts to hold the steering wheel to the coupler.

    Thanks John, and now it only takes about three weeks to make one.

    I made and added the tags. The year tag is the actual sticker material from one of my real cars with a custom made decal for the details.

    Thanks Brad. I thought about it, but I like the reflective look better. I painted the spokes of the wheel metallic gray then built up the black with Tamiya Smoke for a subtle gloss anodized black look. Still need to finish the rim.

    A mix of pearl white and silver was shot to match the reflective finish on the face of real plate. (The back was painted flat silver.) I made a decal that was applied to the front for the lettering.

    Thanks Bruce! I milled a license plate frame from some resin I cast into a blank first. I used dye to make it gray when I mixed it, this hasn't been primed yet. Front: Back:

    The brass center and aluminum ring are melded together. Front: Back:

    I machined the rim for the steering wheel from 7075 aluminum.
