Hi Folks,

First off, a BIG THANK YOU to those that took the time to comment on this build. Apologies for not thanking you sooner!!!

Finally getting around to an update...

Working on making the steering wheel and column, I wanted the steering wheel to turn so the knuckle coupling had to function and I used telescoping tubing for the column. The column will just dead end in the rack. The idea being when I pose the wheels in a turned position I can also pose the steering wheel in the correct way.

Next up is the ZF transaxle and bell housing. Using styrene ... ref. pics of a RBT replica and the bell housing.

Wow! really incredible work. Just wondering, should you decide to paint this model you'll have to disassemble it right? is that possible?
