I like how this is starting out. You even have to oil stains on floor and I like that it implies that there is a hard working auto enthusiast who works in there.  [biggrin]

Hi all here is tonights episode.
I drilled out the distributor so I could put the HT leads in.
then I made the HT leads out of thin solder wire.
Then I cut them to length and squished the ends to make the tabs to connect them to the spark plugs.
Then I noticed from the ref photos I have that there are rivets and badges on the starter motor and solinoid so I added them.
still loads of detail to add to the engine bay, got an idea for making the jubilie clips for the radiator hoses and I am going to attempt to make the fuel pump and assossiated pipes as they are only vaugley moulded into the firewall.

Yes I have a mate who works in a garage and asked him to give me the overall dimensions then from pics I have of a 4 post lift I worked out the dimensions of the posts, still got the control box and the electric motors to add then a few chipped bits of paint and general wear and tear to make it look more realistic.

Here is todays bit on the packard. the fuel pump and filter are not included with the kit so I decided to have a go at making them.
 
 
 
 
 
and I had a go at making the seats look like old cracked leather(quite unsuccessfully) any suggestions ?

The lift looks great, and I love the rust effect on the manifold it looks very realistic ! Nice bit of scratchbuilding on your builds and that is a lovely shade of blue on the bodywork too. I've never tried to paint a cracked leather effect before so can't really offer any useful advice there I'm afraid ! Perhaps another member has had some experience doing this and can chip in with some help

Great stuff, I really enjoy your dioramas, thanks for sharing them with us
