harveyb258 Posted June 24, 2018 Author Share Posted June 24, 2018 Good morning chaps!!! A bit of an update for you all... With the tank now in place, I made the fuel-line and coupling. I used 1mm brass rod and bent to 90deg's. Then, using a short (10mm -ish) 2mm brass tube, I filed into hex shape and cut each nut to length, as required. Add in a length of 2mm shrink-tube from Top Studio and VOILA!..... Next to get some attention was the rear floor panel. I didn't want it looking too plain, so, to add a bit of interest, I added a strengthening strip toward the front edge and an access panel for the fuel- coupling. The hinge was simply formed by bending the leaves around a piece of 0,5mm wire. The working catch was made from an M0,6mm nut and bolt, washers and a small strip of brass. Once bolted in place, a small touch of solder on the end prevents anything loosening. Of course, everything received a couple of "dirty" washes ( this car was FILTHY in the studio shots...)!! Well, that's all for now, folks! Thank you, as always, for watching and I hope you enjoy!! More soon... Cheers, H 9 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
