Hi all, here is what you get for the coil springs in this kit,

after hunting through my springs collection I found these

I'm a bit disappointed they don't show up more

A huge improvement over what comes in the kit and I agree, it is a shame they are not more visible!

the kit springs are naff, the springs you put on are a lot better, i agree it`s a pity you can only see a very small part of them

Here is another update on this one.
I'm wondering (since I've made it gull wing) should I do away with the door handles move them further down or turn them sideways.

re the door handles you could keep them on the same level as they are but move them to the middle of the door, on the merc. i did with gull wing doors the handle was at the bottom of the door, but as it is a custom job it is entirely up to yourself where you put them as there is no right or wrong place for them, you are doing a grand job so far hope to see more soon

Hi all been adding some detail from all the reference pics I've got they all show this with servo assisted breaks, this is what the kit supplies
Image
So I acquired this off my missus favorite tipple (she is Scottish)
Image
After a little sanding and a crease in the right place
Image
Image
Image
I've no idea where a lot of these pipes go as I've not got enough ref pics so I've guesstimated

Is that top from a bottle of Famous Grouse per chance? :grin: It's made a great brake servo and the engine bay of the 'Vette is looking superb.

It's one of my missus tops I cut up, she was a bit cross as she was wearing it at the time.

It never ceases to amaze me the knock on effects changing something on a kit, the doors are causing all sorts of problems first when I did the door shuts I couldn't open the doors because the corner of the firewall stopped it so I had to undo it then cut the corner of the door panels off to clear it then ( after I'd glued the windows in) I discovered (since they were designed for fixed doors they wrapped round the sides and included the side windows therefore preventing the doors from shutting, grrr)
Image
I mentioned I'd already glued them in didn't I, well normally revells glue for clear plastic comes unglued fairly easily (in fact I've had windows fall out at the slightest touch) do you think this would come off, no stuck like a limpet so I had to cut the side window bits off with the window installed (not easy I can tell you.
