      I decided the time has come for me to build yet another 1/12 scale Super Seven, (it has been almost six years since I finished my last one), the only “problem” is I don’t have any more kits of them.
      If I counted correctly, this will be my 7[SUP]th[/SUP] 1/12 scale Seven.
      So instead of shopping for one, I grabbed a sheet of brass and started cutting, beating and bending.
      I am not sure why I started with the hood first, it just seemed like a good idea.

    Thank you Dan.

    From the inception of this car I had an idea that it should be white and yellow with black and gray accents. And checkerboard graphics were in the mix as well. But I never really planned a design, until the other night. I drew up and fitted art to fit the nose and made a decal Another Super 7 . (Still needs to be shot with clear.)

    I decided to take a break from plumbing Another Super 7 and wiring and work on the muffler. Still in raw material form, the heat shield was machined from brass and there is an air gap to keep the driver’s leg from getting seared. The muffler was machined from aluminum rod stock.

    Dry mounted. Still need to make a bracket, then time to paint and detail…

    It was getting more tedious to get all the wires routed to their proper locations, hence the subject change... Now while the paint dries on the muffler I took another stab at it, the wires from the ignition box to the distributor should be the last of those for this side, at least in the lower part area.

    These are the battery cable ends. Brass and aluminum.

    Fresh off the lathe, one of the fuel filters. Still needs paint and detailing.

    Thanks very much guys!

    I went back and cut the DC logo into the muffler.

    Not all that visible under the heat shield, but it is there. It’s a little easier to see in person.

    Was it worth the time and effort to add it? Beats me, but I wanted to see what it would look like.
