Re: LHD Seven

I added the side terminals to the top and notched the rib in the main body to match.

Re: LHD Seven

The master cylinder is done. The cap was machined as were the fittings and mounting hardware. The seals between the reservoir and cylinder were made from soft vinyl. The decals were drawn and printed by me.

Re: LHD Seven

The header had already been modified to work with the other LHD converted pieces from when I wrote the Scale Auto article chronicling how to do it.
It was in two pieces still as it comes in the kit. I cemented them together and filled the seam and ejection pin holes. The flanges have been drilled to accept the mounting hardware (that I still have to make).

Re: LHD Seven

The pipes were bent from brass tubing. The rear bracket is brass sheet.

Re: LHD Seven

I finished making the battery cables for the side terminals. (The hex heads are the correct size.)

Re: LHD Seven

The battery is done, slightly weathered/dirtied up. (I can't attach the cables until I know how to route them after I install it.) The top terminals are scaled correctly so the positive one is a hair larger diameter than the negative post. I drew all the art and printed the decals.
