Excellent I was afraid it might become brass-less.

Now where is the order form? 

Really like the looks of it and fantastic craftsmanship   :clapping: 

Where did you get the red anodized spacers on the back? they look cool too.

:good: Looking GREAT Régis!!!

 

For those air filters, try running some paper through two 48 pitch gears and wrap the strips around the filters in the slot.
But, you already are doing that... right?

Where did you get those carbs/filters from? 

Did you make them yourself?

I just found this thread. There is so much to look at on this site. This project may look like a slot car but really it's art. Wow!

Great build, Love the color. Hope the varnish doesn't hurt the highlights in the paint.

That's why I took pictures before
