Thanks Frithjof!

After riding out a couple of rolling earthquakes this weekend, I got back to work. Two more bits applied. First was the seat spring. I made a forming buck out of brass strip, and clamped a piece of styrene strip to it. Then a quick dip in boiling water and a nice formed part is made. I wanted a styrene part because I hate painting metal.

The steering wheel will be missing, so I 3D printed the splined shaft that would be left. (printed by Shapeways)

Looking good!

How far are you from the epicenter of the quake?

Mapquest says 145 miles. Significant rolling, but no damage except to calm.

As usual, more real than life. Great work and most interesting to follow. btw, with a good metal primer, painting metal is as easy as painting styrene. (Which I don't like... Cheesy) And there are several ways to color metal chemically aswel;  But then again, I am the 'Wood Man '  Wink....
