Looking good! Looks better if it it was orange  :p 

I've been trying to figure out why my car needs to leak something. Solved the oil leak, coolant leak and fuel leak....now its leaking electricity! 

Still...not touched it since last weekend so should probably go investigate.....

Like that - I think I read an entry of you making that, didn't I?

 

I'm trying to do something similar as well but struggling to use Blender...

 

I did my first long-distance trip yesterday; 325 miles in an 11-hour day, where I learnt some important lessons:

 

1. No roof isn't a problem in rain.

2. Non-working wipers IS a problem in rain.

:D

It was me ;) I had some spares made, Steve bought one off me...

 

Blender :-S eeurgh, don't go that route for this sort of thing. If you're doing 3D models in games then fair enough but for design of parts for construction, I wouldn't go that route. Fusion 360, Onshape, Sketchup, etc. much better, even Openscad which is what I originally used to do these badges!

I really like it too, Dan had them made as a limited batch, so grabbed one whilst they were available.

I had a similar issue with rain on the trip to Wales. I have no windscreen so wipers not an issue, but no drain hole in seat and waterproofer that were not waterproof did make it damp.

It's the engine-side flange of a bellhouse I'm fabricating for the Lotus 23 project
