As the others have said, looking great, shame about the breakages. I was wondering if you could have solder the broken metal bits together or use something like a epoxy glue to fix :think: make sure that you roughen up the parts before gluing to ensure good adhesion :superlglue:

I keep my fingers cross for you that the superglue repair holds for you :pray:

Thx Roy - yeah, probably epoxy glue, you're right. - I can solder a little bit, but these are too small for me to solder... :superlglue:

I have finished this....it is a lovely kit and I thoroughly enjoyed the build (2 years :o ) - lights, sound, throttle, horn all work - Just needs Steppenwolf blaring Born to be Wild in the background :D apologies, I bumped the rear view mirror down in the shots :?
