Over christmas and new year days was no time to continue this endless work.Now I will go on. Starting this car I didn't foresee the the challenge of that build. But I hope for a lucky finish now.
The motor cover is finished so far.
First I bent the brass sheet for middle part over some layers of soft gum.

In the next step I cut the side walls.

And soldered them temporarily to the brass plate.

Motor cover was complete now, but the roll bar elongations were too wide.

So I cut them at the black line and moved the outer wall inside.
The now existing surface irregulations are leveled with Tamiya light curing putty

There is some fine tuning necessary to close the gaps and making the holes for the air ventilation at the rear end and on the right wall for the loop to activate the rescue system.

Some improvement ar the motor: I replaced the resin cast Protar 312 B2 half axles by resin cast MFH axle copies from the 312 B.

Next was the construction of the bottom part of the ram boxes.
Made the master from hard foam and face formed them from 0,3 styrene sheet.
