    That's first rate all the way.

    Good evening everyone and thank you for your praise! Very honestly they are always
    welcome ...

    We are always on the front, but you will see later, the rear is not forgotten!

    On the front "bunker" is the steering rack. The black piece on the next pic:




    Another piece of casting with two small growths which I had problems ... And finally, I found the method.
    An ordinary piece of Scotch on the tube, once the "cap" correctly positioned, filling the putty and it's OK ... It remains only paste in the appropriate places such small pieces!



    The case in question , without lids ...



    Gaiters on the lathe:



    And now, pass rear!
    You said multimédia?





    And for fun...





    Thanks for looking!
