It's funny you singled that out. Initially, that was quickly fabricated just as a guide to measure the proper firewall cut-out. Then I added a fabricated choke and a few other details and thought, "Well, it's cheesy but it's good enough I suppose" (remember-I'm lazy!)

My original "carb plan" was to sculped a highly detailed master, make a mold, then melt aluminum pop cans for the pour, then add fine details to that. (Yeah right! ...maybe one day but not now). 🙄

Great work Chris, do you use a 3D printer to make any of your plastic parts.

Great work Chris, do you use a 3D printer to make any of your plastic parts. 

Jeff, the short answer is, "No, I do not."  (well, not yet)  To date, however, this project has been my most "technically modern."  I use cell phones & tablets for reference pics (no more printed paper photos) along with scale mathematics. Although I still "eye-ball" measurements, it's easier to do when I know "other parts" are precise scale replicas.

I do hope to start 3-D printing (and replication) one day, but for now it's still a combination of 100% scratch building, "part pirating," part modification....and a few compromises along the way. 😉
