It remains to be varnished body after removing decals

The steering wheel made this morning, brass and aluminum, it needs tweaking lime part of the aluminum before painting.

The ring is made from a brass rod Ø 1.5mm, the aluminum part has been rotated and adjusted.

Régis,

Bien joué. Now, that's what I call scratch building! You are quite the sculptor. My hat is off to you.

Let us know how the race goes.
