Why change the wheels? Looks great as is.

Comment by Brian S
Hi Charles. When i remove the drum brakes to fit the drive plates, the wheels are left with a cavity where the drums were. The 17'' wheels i used on my Alfa are already set up to take these plates. Also looking at Bentley photo's, 17' s are more in proportion. Cheers Brian.

Comment by Brian C
I love everything about this cart *Gasp* WOW indeedThe gauges are just what I"m looking to do for my bri-gatti (My names Brian as well.) Did You make the Black and white background scale on the meters?

Comment by Brian S
Hi Brian..Thank's for your comment's.I just love the detail on these wonderful old cars..I found a signwriter who reproduce's dashboard gauge decal's for car restorer's and then made the surround's out of bit's of broken teapot's etc. and faced them with circle's of acrylic sheet.. Alfa Romeo used Jaeger Paris Gauges i'm not sure about Buggatti..If you have any problem's sourcing them i could send you some of mine..Regard's Brian..

Comment by Bob Gordon
This build is amazing! Can I ask what is the wheelbase on your CK as I love the scale!
2018-04-10 19:06:44 # 49655
Comment by Brian S
Hey, thanks Bob. Wheel center to wheel center is 1760mm. and 1 meter wide between the tire centers. NB. Presume you are referring to the Alfa . Cheers Brian.

Comment by Bob Gordon
Yes, the beautiful Alfa for sure. Im in the process of designing my first CK inspired by a 23 Alfa RL Targa Florio but not sure the scale looks right. Thanks for the info!! Great job!

Comment by Bob Gordon
BTW the 550 looks beautiful too! Kit car?
2018-04-10 20:02:23 # 49659
Comment by Brian S
We think the 550 is a Beck from the States, but not absolutely sure. Fun to drive, very quick.
