Sure. Why not?..........lol

I cleaned up the steering wheel and drilled out the holes in the spokes.  But from this pic it looks like I need to do more sanding on the rim.  Don't you just love the way seeing your pics on a monitor brings out all of the flaws?..lol



More checking of clearances and positioning.  The water connection from the heads goes to a pipe on the roll bar.




I also got the holes for the intakes and throttle plates drilled and checked them.

Does that mean the coolant is fed through the roll bar?
Looking great Paul.

Looks nice Paul.... I have seen motorcycles that had the coolant running through the frame so why not..?

Less hoses so less clutter and weight, good idea when you think about it.

Thanks for all of the kind comments.

I spent a bit of time working on it today.  First I dry-fit the monocoque together, then I checked the fit and alignment of the rear suspension.









Cleaned up and checked the throttle linkage





Radiator hoses were fitted





And the wheels got some color

The rivet detailing on the body is fantastic!! These kits are like miniature replicas.

Spent a couple of hours on this today.  Mostly getting pieces primered and painted.  The spark plug leads were painted and installed.




The pices that go on the front of the engine are on.



Intake tubes installed




Distributor parts painted




The start of plumbing the fuel distributor

Thanks guys

I got the fuel distributor all plumbed up.




Then I got the ignition distributors mounted and wired.  Ferrari used dual spark plugs per cylinder on this engine





Fuel distributor mounted.




Fuel lines on.  I still need to add tie-wraps to bundle the lines.




The stand off for the intake trumpets was fabricated.  I had to cut the four stand-offs from .5mm wire stock
