  • Aug 2014
 

CAD work for bespoke wheels done.  Looking at doing correct pattern wheels in cast brass with a steel tyre. Will be experimenting with rim insulation or a central plastic bush.

Test etches from the 2004 artwork ordered for evaluation. First look at the artwork and comparing it to our aspirations for the model is suggesting I will end up redrawing most of it
