First, here are a couple images of the completed rear end assembly.
With the rear end mounted to the frame, it's looking like a car.
As I expected the rear brakes come closer to working. The calipers can be moved via the brake pedal. The front ones move, if you give the linkage a little help. And actually, from what I have read, that's pretty good.
With the addition of the exhaust system, the chassis is complete. The next step is the madness that is the wire wheels. All the spokes on this one are real and individually assembled in three layers. There's two spares so that's six wheels. It may take as long as the rest of the car has so far to get them done.
I should try to take a better picture of the bottom. It's hard to hold it, and the phone, together.
This is the beginning of one layer of spokes.
There it is, countless hours later, one completed wheel.
