    thanks Egon. sorry but i can`t do letters in brass and i can`t etch any kind of metal. if i had to build these parts i would do it with tin snips and double cut file.

    Stunning workmanship. If only I had the workshop I'd love to get buried into a project like this. Although I'd go for something smaller and easier like an Austin Healey series 1 or the MG Midget. This is going to be fascinating to watch.
