    I machined the bezel for the nose badge from aluminum. Made a decal for the logo and filled it with clear for a cloisonné look.

    I made the rubber hood hold-downs out of soft vinyl.

    Thanks guys! It does seem to have a content smile. I need to finish it by the end of the month (even though I swore to myself I was not going to put a deadline on it three years ago). But I want to have it done for the GSL. I measure and scale everything, but some things don't look right even though they are mathematically correct, so that's where some adjusting and and fine tuning come in. As a last resort I use the exacting process of T.L.A.R. and scaling at the same time. My vector program is just a tool, I define the scale to fit each part.

    Thank you David! The chin spoiler is bolted on (with hardware I machined) and the grille has been installed.
  5. LHD Gulf Seven

    Thanks guys! It is getting close... But there's still plenty to do. It is an occasional weekend racer and therefore could use some numbers for the autocross tracks, but for day to day use the vinyl cling numbers on roundels are stored in this cardboard tube. The tube is Evergreen stock; the caps are milled from raw resin. I made decals for the cardboard and labels. The bottom is taped on like the full size counterpart I copied.

    Since it's off the ground I installed the scratch-built muffler too.

    The wheels and tires have been installed plus well over 100 aluminum parts have been machined and added that are just mounting hardware (bolts, washers and nuts). I also replaced the padding on the transmission tunnel. It looks the same, but it's better than the first one…

    Thanks Pete! I made and installed the padded tunnel cover. (It matches the seat padding.)

    Then I realized I had to make a tire iron to install the wheels… Yes, it has a hexagonal recess and actually fits and works on the lugs.

    Thanks Guys! Finally got around to balancing the tires…

    I drew up a label and printed a decal then slightly weathered it. Yes, it's a Binford.
  12. LHD Gulf Seven

    And the crank.
  13. LHD Gulf Seven

    Thanks guys! Scratch-built bottle jack. (Copy of what I kept in my old Chevy truck.) Milled from raw resin with aluminum bolts and brass for the screw parts.
  14. LHD Gulf Seven

    Machined a shift knob and the shifter boot. (More aluminum…)

    I milled the "rubber" extinguisher holders from a block of resin and made the hold-down bolts and washers.
