I have worked on some this week. If you look at very, very close, you see attachment points for the cam cover bolts to add as well as a area for a large bolt at the front. As for the sink marks, carefully applying Mr Surfacer 500 until the area is filled. Takes small applications at a time. Then very carefully sand the areas. Mr Surfacer 500 is ideal for those areas putty would be difficult to us. Apply with a paint brush, give a day to dry, apply again until it is filled and leveled. I will be posting some photos of where I am at. Drilling for bolts and will begin painting.vontrips wrote:Fiatphile wrote:Steady process of hand fitting the parts. Those areas that look like parting lines have been sanded smooth, but a line remains denoting where it once was. The main parts of the block/trans was molded in the gold color, of which looks very close to the protective coating Ferrari used. However, from photos I have studied, only the transmission appears to be coated, the rest looks like the metal the parts was made from. Of all the areas that had to have sink marks....valve covers. Every one of these I
have seen built, they were left alone and glare out at you. Going to try and fill them, hopefully not destroying and of the details of the cover. Turbo shroud was another area that required much attention to fix mold pin points and sink marks. All in all coming along well, but slow.
Interesting build! I have one in the stash waiting for some enthusiasm! Can't believe how bad those sink marks are on the valve covers...gonna have to check mine now! Have you sorted them yet?
Now, get that puppy out and let's see another in the works.
