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?

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..

This build is amazing! Can I ask what is the wheelbase on your CK as I love the scale!

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.

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!

BTW the 550 looks beautiful too! Kit car?

We think the 550 is a Beck from the States, but not absolutely sure. Fun to drive, very quick.
