    Jon,

    This project is going to be awesome to watch it come together. Your attention to detail is amazing as always. The gear shifts look superb. Since you used a real one as a pattern, is the shifter in the car you started with using the same pattern and connectors?

    Same shift pattern but I'm going to have to figure out the connections.

    This one looks not to have been painted at SpeedZone; as a race car, were you looking for less perfection than a street 246 repaint? Best regards, John in CT

    You find your right side upright Jon? You may end up having to have a run of them made if your set on 206 components. I found lots of 246 uprights.....

    Beautiful!

    What will you be doing to stop/minimize the inevitable up-dents in the aluminum body that are caused by stones coming off the tires at high speed?
    Applying several strategically placed coats of Wurth undercoating, or something else?
    I made some thin nylon liners for a Ruf 930 TT with aluminum fenders that were having that issue, and it worked really great. They were very lightweight, removable, and good up to at least 235mph...

    I will for sure have to address the issue, possibly rubber glued to inside?

    Anything you do is going to add a little weight and involve some labor.

    Rubber sheeting sounds like it could work. Those panels are pretty curvy, so that approach would involve patterns, pieces, joints, and gluing upside down, etc... If you can still flip the car on a rotisserie, it would help make that job easier as you could roll out the glue and bubbles under the rubber, and maybe place some weight on it here and there as the glue dried, etc..

    Spraying several thick coats of the same aqueous Wurth undercoating you are using on the aluminum Dino gas tanks would also work well and be easier. (Mask and spray on the lift, or invert on a rotisserie). I think it is available in Black, Beige (gas tanks) and Grey. I don’t think you have to worry about adhesion based on how hard it came off your RSR donor cars. :)

    Either way, I’m certain you will do a great job.

    neoprene fabric can be rubber cemented in. It works well in different thickness and is reasonably easy to remove.....
