A bit of progress but still a long way to go - loads of detail work to do on the "body work" lamps / brackets and wiring front and rear to be fitted - brakes needs rivet and nut bolt detail + all the other little bits - general wiring to starter motor and generator /lamp switches /battery box and on and on we go !

I love the paint job on the chassis, it reminds me of an Orca.

Very ! Satisfactory

Just remind me ,  your plastic nuts & bolts ..... Do you drill holes for fixing them ( i.e. Leaving the moulded stem on ) or are you just cutting them off flush then fixing

Just seems sharper than my work/method
