The front shock absorbers are those of the kit, but have been enhanced with some painting: I used a very nice chrome (Gravity Color Mac Laren chrome set), sealed with Alclad Aqua gloss Front axle assembly achieved, not without a lot of difficulties, since the instructions are very poor, and the drawings not explicit. But it's done, and it works It remains to give the front axle a little bit of weathering, because the restored car has already be driven on several roads, and I'll use some road dust pigment and polished metal pigment to highlight the reliefs of the axle components. Of course, it will be done at the very end of the build. The chrome exhaust tips still need to be made. The parts supplied in the kit are of poor quality, incorrect size and are solid, whereas tube is required. They will therefore be turned on the the lathe in brass rod, then nickel plated. The engine will be placed soon in the chassis Stay connected if you like Your Attention to detail and 3D printing skill is awe inspiring! How do you decide when/where is enough detail wise? I'm just wondering if the rear shock may be upside down, haven't found any reference photos, just basing that on how the fronts are located. I'm enjoying your build. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
