Chris, thanks for the info. I assumed you ordered directly. Btw, it is coming along great. Nice work with the lead wires. I love using them as well and they glue real easy and paint really well.

Michael, thank you for your input as well. I had been looking at your website to order few items as there are several good ones. I'll pm you as I have few questions about your items. Thanks.

John, thanks for the heads up on the Hard Target. I'll search for their website and check it out. Thanks.

Hello guys,

Here are a few pics with a turret from another C2 project. Just wanted to see how things were looking.




I made a fan shroud for the bottom of the engine deck. I know you won't really see it when it is sitting on the ground...


And now for some torture.....lol. I wasn't happy with the PSM brake rotors. To me they look to small. They might be this size for when the engine is in the hull, but as I am having the engine out....

Well here is one of the rotors some what finished.......



What is hard to see is that there is bolt detail on the face. I will try and get better pictures later...

Morning all,

Well the rotors are finished. And i got onto making the brake calipers.....



And as I am lazy and didn't want to make 4 sets of these, I am going to try something new to me and cast them in resin.....

Evening all, sorry I haven't posted any pictures lately. I have been having issues wth my site I use for pictures. I have the brake rotors in and "plumbed". Also finished the rest of the plumbing. I will get pictures up as soon as I can.
