Cat steering wheel cover kit
For years, I have been looking for the perfect, classic car steering wheel cover kit for my car. I decided that it was high time I built one myself. I wanted something classic, elegant and classic, that I can use for both on and off the road. I also wanted it to have as few holes as possible, so that I could replace the wheel without drilling. I ended up with this:
The whole cover was built using 3mm thick acrylic, and it was glued together using Tamiya Tack-it.
My first project using the kit was to build the kit car. I wanted it to have the old school look, so I decided to go with the classic Jaguar XK-S, and this is the result of my work:
I decided to paint the kit the way I wanted it, and use the Tamiya silver metallic paint, but after about 4 coats it was still a little too bright for me, and not quite right.
As for the kit, it came out pretty well, with a little trouble with some of the parts. The problem with this kit is that it has too many parts. I would recommend this kit to anyone who likes this kind of project, but I don’t think that anyone who doesn’t like working with plastic. My only complaint is that there are some parts with small parts, so it can be a little hard to work with. I ended up using about 9mm tools for most of the parts.
Once I built the kit car, it was time to move on to the project of my life. My dream car. The Ferrari F40.
The kit came with a nice clear instructions, but I found the instructions lacking. After making the kit car, I discovered that the instructions could have been a lot more detailed. But, even with the instructions and the pictures, I still had some trouble with the build.
The kit consists of all the parts that you need to build the F40. It came with a set of nuts and bolts to use in the build. The parts are molded and very accurate, so you should have no problems using the nuts and bolts. The parts are all small parts, so you can use any small plastic tools you want, but I decided to go with a set of 9mm tools.
The instructions were a little bit confusing, as they didn’t really say that it should be mounted to the car when the wheels are turned, but I managed to work it out on my own. The instructions show how the car should look when the wheels are turned, but they don’t show that the wheels are mounted.
I also found the pictures of the kit and instructions a bit confusing, as they are just pictures.
I found the instructions pretty good for the most part, but there are a few parts that I was not able to work out on my own, and I couldn’t find the answer on Google. The instructions should have come with a small printed sheet of instructions.
I made two builds of the F40, and the first one didn’t turn out quite right. The wheel on the rear left side wouldn’t work, so I had to remove the wheel. The other wheel wouldn’t come off, so I had to sand down some parts to remove the glue.
The second build I decided to mount the wheel and the kit to the car. The wheels that came with the kit are already mounted, and they had holes for the nuts and bolts. The kit was mounted using the nuts and bolts, so I had to drill a few holes in the kit for the nuts and bolts. I used 9mm drill bits, and it was the first time I used a 9mm bit in my life. But, I managed to do it on my own. I also made some holes in the dashboard to help the kit stick.
Once the build was finished, I mounted the wheels on the car. I used the old factory wheels that came with the car, and it was easy to mount the wheels using the nuts and bolts.
I have to admit that the build came out pretty good, and I like how the wheel looks on the car. I also like how the wheel looks in the photos.
The only thing I didn’t like, was the plastic of the wheel itself. It doesn’t have a lot of grip, and it doesn’t have the look that I wanted. It came with a silver gloss varnish to finish the wheels, but after a few coats the silver was almost gone.
My advice would be to use a good set of wheels for the build, and maybe go for a more modern set. It would have been better if the wheels were aluminum.
I also don’t like the fact that the wheels are made from thin plastic. Even the factory wheels are made from thicker plastic. But, it isn’t a big deal for me.
Now it’s time for the fun part. The photos of the car on the road.
The F40 came with a few problems, like the factory steering wheel not being mounted, so I had to mount it.
I also had to mount the steering wheel to the car, as the instructions didn’t show how to do it.
The front wheels have been removed to make space for the steering wheel, so the build was a little bit harder. The problem with the build was that I had to build one
