“Cabbing the A3”

I have now completed the cab for the A3 (I think!).

As mentioned earlier in the thread I have now made the roof removable and following the lead from a gent on the Guild forum I have made the cab doors hinged and removable.

The hinge pins are made from 0.8mm nickel rod with small section of tube soldered on one end and then filed down.

Now for a good clean up and a final check to make sure that nothing is missing before re-visiting the paint shop – The seats will be added when it’s assembled after painting I looked at soldering them in now but if I do I cannot get the backhead in…. (hmm I have been here before!)
