Hi John , thanks for posting , TOTALLY amazing work there, just true skill and dedication to even do the wheels and tyres is class but I have jumped ahead to a few points of the build and the whole car from top to bottom is the same.
  Total quality and craftmanship to say the least, a pleasure to look at, no doubt I will be spending hours there now lol.

  Cheers Mick.

              Hi John, am really impressed with the tyres, they look perfect. Look forward to viewing the rest of the project.

                                                     Cheers David

 I get two feelings from this. give up, or try harder! I think that I will stick with the latter, but it will be an uphill struggle.

When i posted the link i had just glanced through a few pages, spent this evening reading it from start up to date. A very impressive build that man certainly has some patience and attention to detail especially when you see ths size of the parts, the door locks and hinges are works of art in their own right.
