Wow!! your car has come out amazing!

Thanks for the tips on finding parts.

I raided that Merc at Dessert Valley about a year ago and took all of the parts I needed. I guess I will have to keep on looking on ebay etc

Again, well done on completing the car

Hi there, just another quick question, were you able to buy your body mounts (and if so where from?) or did you get them made? thanks in advance, Hamish

Hello Hamish,

Here is the response from Dane....

You have to make the ID larger and if you're picky like me, you'll have to turn a few down on a lathe. Both processes work better if the rubber stock is frozen.

Here is a new twist. See the car in 3D. You'll need the 3D glasses to view it.

Very cool although my faded 3D glasses don't seem to work. I'll check for an other one. Great idea and nice to see your car in this gallerie.
