Are your front wheels cast also? Mine are, they were so heavy I thought the tyres had been water filled when I first took one off.
Nice fab job on the frame, The holes not copied over don't look like they have ever been used on mine, apart from the front right hand one which has a small bracket which I think may have been to hold a hand crank for starting. I see you have the front the same height as the sides, mine is about 1/4" lower to allow the front grill surround to bolt to the inside of it.
Nice lights, are you planning to put the indicators and rear lights on too, I believe these are still available new.
Looks like your Elf will be flying long before I finish mine.
Yes, I messed up on the front of the frame. I'll fix that yet. I noticed it after it was done. I get going on something, and
sometimes I forget to think. Like a bull in a China shop.
Oh, yes it will get as many lights/horns/bells whistles as need be, to make it a fancy Elf.
I've got a long way to go, but I'm hoping Elf will be ready, to help make toys for Christmas. Probably not, but
it's a goal to shoot for.
Your front rims are cast?? Talk about unique.
