Looking good. You build quick. You retired or something? It would take me at least a month of focusing on the one subject to do it With the time I have.

The kit was missing the wheels and tires so I found substitutes in my spares bixlThey are smaller but remind me of the Antique cars used in amusement parks that had smaller tires.I think they are cool!

The instructions would have you mount the spare on the fender,but I did not like that so I made a mount from a dragster steering yoke and a brass handrail pin.Much cooler!Very neat!
