      Hi everybody, here is my current project. http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/...&thumb=1&stc=1http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/...&thumb=1&stc=1http://www.scalemotorcars.com/forum/...&thumb=1&stc=1
      The car was in bad shape, some parts missing, some broken, missing wires from the wheels etc.
      I began unbuilding the car and sorting all the screws, nuts, and metal parts.

    I really don't like all those casts on damper and spring mounts, so I flattened them and will make prototypically correct ones out of machine worked aluminum.

    Some work on the engine. The compressor's backplate was widened by 2mm, because too narrow. Holes for the fuel and oil lines have been opened on the engine mounts and a convex shaping has been given to house the steering box in the correct position.
    Still a lot of work ahead of me

    The rear axle with correct brake lever supports and the head covers with brass Acorn nuts

    Next step will be cutting away the differential plate, use a copper foil to make the seal and then bolt it in place
