That's coming along very nicely Fabrice. It looks like a real tidy suspension setup and shouldn't be too long before you get to test it.

Tanks guys,

Only 40 days before the Garat GP (16) and I would know if the modifications to my Stevenson are sufficiently effective....
Yesterday I put on the brakes ! The first tests are approaching ...
The second brake caliper will also be used for the parking brake
Aging is mandatory, growing up is optional .....

looks amazing. I think you have pulled off the wheel arches very well. I havent seen that on a CK before. The polished finish just looks amazing

Hello,

At the risk of disappointing some, the body will be painted!
The major part of the body is in AU4G and this type of Aluminum aged quite badly with UV rays ....
I did not want to use AGS which could have remained polished and unpainted because it is too "soft" in my opinion as a simple handyman ....

Hi Fabrice,
Its amazing how close your VKC looks like the original VKC design!!
Improved version of the original in many ways, with rear suspension, lights, removable fenders, and the lower seating and steering position.
Are there more improvements I'm not seeing? Do the panel instruments work?
What color will it be?
