The beautiful insanity continues. So, Ben, are you going to do something like a gloss black or custom color or what on the frame? BTW, I like how you have the rods sitting across between the upper control arms and the frame rails. Nice way to keep it good and square until everything is completely dialled in.

Edited because I can't spell sometimes. :D

With the last two pics, I can almost hear the "psssssst". I really like how you used those pins to hold the spindle to the ball joints. I've lost my ever loving mind...I just made a statement about actual ball joints on a 1:25 scale model. :blink:

Ben, I don't know what you have planned to put in those wheel sleeves. But it would be so cool if you found or made some of those old cheap "wagon wheels" American Racing used to make, color match or black them, and slide them in those sleeves.
