A bit more Aston...

Once the rear cage had been added, I needed to make the front chassis.
Again, this was made primarily from brass section all Araldited together.
It was fixed into the front of the car and then the engine firewall could be attended to.

The radiator and header tank was then made and fitted, to make way for the engine later on.

A bit more here.

The main engine block was installed into the front frame and the cylinder head, carbs and exhaust manifold were built up 'out' of the car for ease of detailing the parts.
Once it was reasonably ready, the head was fitted to the engine block.

Thanks Malc.

The manifolds are made from old microphone cable with the core pulled out, then copper earth wire from 32A mains cable pushed in. You can then bend it to any shape you want.

The rubber cuts to shape easily and glues very well using Cyano.
Weld lines are added using a stained glass window pen then all sprayed satin black.
