1/8 Citroen V8 traction maybe?

Well I thought I would weld the doors shut and de-seam it

As you can see from the last pic it was a huge mistake it will need a load of sanding and resanding to get anything like a smooth finish (and that's before any custom paintwork)
Anyway I couldn't resist trying it on the chassis, I must say I'm quite excited I think it looks great, at least it's a good framework for a great hot rod.

Hi all well paint job is done (needs a few clear coats and rubbing down to smooth it) I quite like it.

Hi all just a quick update before we're off on our hols I've fabricated the exhausts for it.

Hi all well I'm back off my hols and after a huge amount of hacking and jiggling I managed to make the interior fit.

I changed the centre pillar from leather to wood I like the contrast between the leather and the wood (I think it looks more luxurious)

Still got the dash to do, thinking of adding rev counter and oil pressure gauge, wondering if I should add a more modern Speedo.

 Hi all well I don't like the bulge in the boot with the tyre so I'm doing away with it and am going to go without a spare. Not decided yet but I may add a spolier to the boot.

Hi all well this is As far as this is going looking like this anyway, it's off the bench while I do a bit of research and catch up on some of my stalled builds.

When it returns to the bench I'm going to attempt to do it as a steampunk car.
