Hi all well here's tonight's bit, that steering rack was a real pain the ball joints are supposed to push through and be an interferance fit but I had us a dremell tool by hand to gradually open it up enough to get the ball joint through without it just falling back out again, very sloooow gentle work with lots of checking to make sure the ball joint didn't just fall through. got to paint it and weather it now, would have painted it first but it is a tight fit and wasn't sure it would slide through the shaft after it was painted will now use very thinned down paint and hopefully if I keep moving it as the paint dries it will remain working.

Hi all well this steering rack has driven me to hurling this against the wall, I've re-glued it on no less than a dozen times only for it to come off almost as soon as I turn it over, fingers crossed its on for good now, tried a test fit of the engine (I have to say it fitted before, but someone stood on one of the engine mounts (my fault I shouldnt have left it on the floor)when I took it off to do the breaks and clutch pedal linkages) now the engine dosnt lign up on that one so it will have to come off and see whats wrong with it.

Hi all well the body (the majority of it anyway is glued together) I cant recommend Roy's cd enough, I've referenced it often but here it is invaluable he shows you how to assemble the body as a separate part which will save a lot of hard work later on also if following his instructions the finished body is very tough.

there is however one very big problem with my model, which I don't know how I will get round  I couldn't resist trying the bonnet on and the air box is too high lifting the bonnet, that is going to be a real pain, not sure whats happening to be honest, I know I had it (the airbox ) in the wrong place originally but its where it should be now, the engine sits on the engine mount properly?

 

 

 

 

you can see from this pic the problem

That's quite a huge lift on there. That can't be right. ????

hope you can sort out the engine vs bonnet since you have created ultra realism thus far.

Hi all well I've sorted the air intake problem and started filling and sanding the rear of the car, I would like to prime it so I can see what further filling and sanding will be needed but till Citroen France get back to me with either the colour code or the paint itself, I've no idea what primer to use, I don't want to prime it then have it all react with the top coat.

Hi all well I've added the rubber piping that goes between the wings and the body and I've started the front seats (see if this works before I do the rear ones) I'm going to try the marbelling effect I used on the Kwak Z1 a while ago only not going to have so much of it, so this is just the base colour which would show through from the cracked vynle (how do you spell vynel vynal ????)

Hi all well I bought some halfords plastic filler/primer and some halfords plastic primer and here is the result of the first coat of filler primer, I must say I am well chuffed with the first coat (I thought it would reveal a horrendous filling job which required loads of work) I will admit it has shown some areas which need attention, but the piping (I think anyway) looks just about right. I also did the first coat on the seats, which I'm also quite pleased with, yes it needs another coat but (I think anyway) its looking promising.

Hi all a small update on this one, filled the little hollows on the body and did a bit more weathering of the seats.

This is all looking very fabulous mate! I like the piping and that really does give it a little kick in the one-up'ns department. lol. Your work on those seats is amazing so far. That really looks like some lightly stained leather.

I'm loving it.  [biggrin]
