WOW! I love the whole car. Chassis, running gear, awesome body. But the pipes are the proverbial cherry on top.  :wub:

How are they mounted?

Thanks guys. I think the pipes really make the car too. Mike, I finally decided to glue the 4 small pipes into a piece of larger tube and epoxy that into a corresponding hole in the body:

The pipe is also resting on part of the rear deck of the body for support. I was thinking of applying a little fillet of epoxy there too but the pipes seem pretty solid as is.

Hi Rick,


It's been a long while and hope you're doing well!


Viewing (drooling actually!) your craftsmanship is like looking at jewelry!


Another masterpiece Rick!
