Yup, the factory setup is really squarish offset to the driver side of the hump. This one your reproducing looks like it has a custom floor in it. But its still offset.

Top stuff on the dash, Al. Matches the rest of the build. I'm gonna make sure I'm nowhere near MOTM
when this baby hits the starting grid!

Cheers,

Chris

The wheels came from this guy on ebay:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/400453451942?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649

Only took about ten days from Australia and they are very nicely cast too.

That seller is the ebay page for a shop in Sydney (http://www.bnamodelworld.com/) that I've bought stuff from over the last 3 years. Always had quick service and good communications from them. Those particular wheels are made by ThePartsBox.com, for whom BNA Model World are a reseller.

They are nice wheels, I've got several sets of them.

Got the interior well under way.

I don't have any suitable period seats so I'm just going to have to use this one.  Oh well!!!









I still have the cable/zip ties to do on the cage padding.

Wheels are done too. Tyres still to dull coat.

I agree about looking good. Those wheels are really spot on. Nice interior also.

Thanks guys.

I now have the engine finished and installed.

There are no engine mounts, just a trannie mount.... BUT.... it's such a neat and tight fit, it doesn't need them. It doesn't even need glue!!!





My normal modus operandi, is to assemble as many same colour parts as possible before painting. So I went ahead and fitted the rad. wall.

The engine is such a snug fit I feared I'd need to break it away again, in order to get the rad in.

Fortunately, it's slim and does (just) fit in!!

Let's meet up at Croft for a track day when they are both finished Ron. We'll have a race to see which is fastest!!! LOL

Until I opened the Patto's Place decals, I'd forgotten they are primarily meant to go on the inside of clear Lexan slot car bodies and so are matt finished.

Bruce says not to use normal clear coats but use Future instead when applying to statics. However, I cannot find Future over here and a test on a scrap decal show they do indeed react.

Oh well, I'll just have to resign myself to them being flat.

Al, did they paint the engine compartment white on the race car? I know that they were all satin black from the factory.

Beautiful engine by the way...

Oh, and the UK version of Future is called "Krystal Klear" or "Johnson's One and All".

I think it was black Sam, but I hate black for engine compartments so mine is white!!! LOL

I can get both of those products but cannot get them to give a good shine for me for some reason. I read somewhere that they are not exactly the same formula.

Al, try using Tamiya X22 Acrylic clear. It's what I've used on decals in the past with no problems. Also usefull for light lenses and PE scripts.

Thanks both.

Steve..... thanks for the suggestion but I've never been impressed by Tamiya clear but it's worth another go on an unused decal.

I got the roll cage padding and cable ties finished tonight.









I also have the wheels permanently attached and tyres dull coated.



Not too far to go now.
