      Waiting for the spring leaf shocks to be ready...(Very long scratchbuilding stage...) I dedicated myself a bit to the rear axle and the differential box....many parts were scratchbuilt here to replace the Pocher ones....
      Besides, a brass bar reinforcement was made to allow the bolting of the transmission tunnel to the rear axle shroud...(Not in the kit)

      Cheers

    Geez Mario, it looks like you had to turn the rod stock down before threading for the tranny tunnel attachment.

    Sterling work. First rate all the way.

    I did, the closest brass rod to 2 mm I could get here was 3/32" = 2.38 mm

    Anyway, for an easy 90% threading, you must go to 1.9 mm diameter, and that is what I did...

    Cheers
