    I can't wait to see the next step. I had the same trouble with my leaf springs also. Styrene Article: Amazing 1/8 Scale 1969 Camaro Build just doesn't make it. I went and scratchbuilt a set of parallel springs out of brass. They're functional and they look great. If you check out Ken Foran's (a.k.a. xken) thread on his Model T, you can see how he did it. It can be a bit time consuming but the way he shows how to do it is not difficult at all.

    Mine will never be "finished", but I do hope it's drivable again soon. I bought it in April and ran. What I didn't notice at the time was the snapped suspension spring on the front. Instead of doing the basics and replace the spring, I decided to replace the entire front suspension with all modern components. Of course, I don't know anything about suspensions and especially replacing factory systems with aftermarket. It's been a fun experience and modeling cars has been somewhat helpful over the years with preparing me. Hope to have it back together in another month or so. We'll see.

    Maybe when it gets back together, I'll be able to go back to working on the small scale with my spare time.

    It's been a while since I posted anything, this project is fighting me every step of the way. Seems too be taking more and more time too finish
    any parts. Anyway the grill gave me a difficult time but I finally finished
    it along with a few other parts. I can't seem to upload photos, here's
    a link, the last 7 pics are new.

    Are you sure these are not real parts, the detail is incredible, just like they came from the factory, amazing

    What did you use to wrap the wire harness

    Look forward to seeing more and more

    Hi Tony, and thank you.

    I used electric wire tape and cut 1/8" strips.

    Finished the engine bay, just a few miner details to do. I need to start on the interior, it will be a nice change after all
    that engine work.

    Bill, you certainly are a man with a huge amount of passion for what you are building, this is just amazing with detail that really is amazing, that engine bay is certainly raising the bar way beyond anything I have seen before,
    Truly amazing with all the detail, crickey you even put the detail on the radiator hoses, now that is cool
