I haven't spent all of my time at the lake. Although it is tempting. Progress will be slow until October-November. depending on when it snows. :cry:

Worked on the cast Parts from Thunder Valley F1. Washed and scrubbed them before priming.

Years ago I ordered the Thunder Valley F1 Perfect Parts FW14B Brake kit. I got most of it. What I didn't get was the two rotors for the rear brakes. A large number of e-mails, a couple of phone calls when he still had a phone for TVF1, and still no rotors. What I did as you can see, is cut the brake hats of the kit pieces and Dremel the holes bigger so the hats would fit. Using a vice to hold the part and hacksaw the hat off, left marks. I used Tamiya putty and 800 grit sand paper to smooth it out. The one photo shows the rotors I did get.
