Been working on this for a week or so, it's very close to being finished, first thing is the paint; Touch n Tone orange from the can, interior is Ivory from a can.

and a little orange flocking on the floor.

Decided to use the 70's spoke wheels, got a couple detailed,

And then I narrowed the rear axle and shaved some off of these crappy excuse for springs.

Something I missed in mock-up, if I put the front axle in its intended spot the tires look to far forward, but if I move it to just behind the intended spot, they look "right". What do ya'll think?

To me, the wheels look better moved back.

Scooby-doo happens! Guess this will be on hold till I can source a replacement. Was going pretty good till this point,

Tried to pin it back together, but just ain't going to work. So its on to the next one for now.

Bummer about the axle, but at least it's a common enough part that securing a replacement shouldn't be too difficult.

It'll also give you a chance to address the position issue.
