Great, really great job on the interior! Doing the job on the foil, it looks like it's even more tedious than decals. But then, one can retry foil if it doesn't work, where with decals there is no easy backup. Thanx for what looks like a champ!

That's a great period interior Denis. Righ colours and just the right sheen to it as well.

I got back to this one off and on and finally managed to make progress and even completed it so I thought I should complete the WIP as well.

First off was the BMF which was a time consuming and tough job.  I'm not doing that again with this car.





Completed the chassis





I moved on to final assembly but had a problem with getting the radiator to fit but with the help of a couple guys (Al being one of them) I managed to get it in by sanding off part of the fan mount and shaving off the width of the radiator a bit.

Thanks to everyone here who followed along and encopuraged me along the way of this long winded and broken up WIP. I will have pics in the completed section shortly.

I would soak them in Castrol Super clean. That should get all the chrome off.
