Thanks Marek. I love this stage of the build. Making all the little adornments like the fuel guage. It's a bit of an armoured cable gland and I coloured in the dial ect on card then covered it with perspex. I also used the same thing for the radiator thermostat guage. The dodge has loads of adornments so that is gonna be fun. Really looking forward to painting all the signage on as well. When I paint the number on the side of the fuel tank I'm gonna drill lots of holes in the number to aid air getting into the fan.

I have modified the brake pedal to make it more adjustable and give a bit more leg room. I am waiting on a bead roller from Amazon so I can start on the body work. I have some 1.2mm aluminium sheet left over from a couple of other projects so I will use that.

Hooray, the chassis is finished at last. I hope to paint it this weekend and start putting it all back together. Thanks for all the kind words, it is very encouraging and has kept me going. I'm still hoping to get it out for testing before the end of March.

I managed to paint the chassis and start making the floor last weekend. The satin black paint reacted with the primer and crackled. Luckily I'm not after a show finish.

Don't worry about a bit of crackle finish, I worry about the paint finish on my CK
then I remember the brush strokes visible on a lot of the cars at the
Brooklands museum, and I feel a whole lot better.

that may just be a lucky accident with the rustic/patina finish on the baquet. looks like a really interesting floor

With the floor finished I put the car back up the right way and started reassembling it. I also made the bonnet sides from ali and hardboard that has the rear on the outside. This is so it looks like the canvas stuff on the original car. I will paint it white later.

I have almost finished the bonnet and painted and couple of wheels. I fitted one of the new tyres 2.75 and like the block pattern on them. Ebay and 85 quid for the set. Started on the exhaust using some 27mm tube from a scrap bin.
