    I'm kinda partial to the green and black one too, but yeah that purple....

    I'll have to do some test panels. I have another top half of the body sitting on the bench as it didn't quite work the first time so I'll see if I can do one side in the green and black and the other in the purple :)

    Actually yes :)

    I've made the radiator and shell. I just need to glue the mesh in the front once I've finished painting it.

    I have also started work on carving the roof section. My jeans used to be Blue! :)

    Not show is the front cantelevers pulled down as I wasn't happy with the action of it. So I'm rebuilding it with tighter tolerances and a more secure way of keeping the pushrod horns at 90 degrees to each other. I was going to attempt to move it all inboard but there just wasn't the room or clearances to make it happen.

    I know I've been quiet a bit lately, but thngs are moving very slowly.

    I have managed to make the steering wheel which will eventually be mounted on a mini servo. Just need to make the dash now :D

    I was gonna say that the steering wheel was on the wrong side, but I realized you're in the Down Under...been wondering what happened to your build...

    that's why you keep a robe or pair of shorts next to the door, prevents any awkward moments.

    LMAO... once you pass the 50 mark, you don't even bother with the robe. They'll get used to it. Because once you've reached that particular age, you find you care a lot less...
