Chipping away slowly on this one, as another project has stolen most of my attention.
Got some parts shipped in. I decided to go more plain-body racer than modified streetcar after all. Picked up a Roll-cage, gas traps and a slab of floor details.
Here's the rollcage tacked together.
I was having hard time with the front hood not closing properly, so I gambled on an idea I had using magnets.
I drilled through both components, carefully. Almost tension fit. But some super glue never hurt.
It totally worked. I was psyched.
I no longer have to tape the thing closed. Need to throw a dab of putty to cover up the magnet,
And next step is to figure out the bracket for the rear wing.
