The time has finally come to start my build of Bob Shores Peewee V4. I know I don't yet possess the skills I need, but I plan on learning what I need to know along the way. I've been busily collecting most of what I need, although I'm stuck on a couple of seals that McMaster-Carr refuse to sell me and don't seem to be available anywhere else in the world, but I'm sure I'll solve that problem when I really need to. This will be my first attempt at using castings and I haven't got the money for any more, so i hope I don't screw them up beyond repair. They generally look pretty good, although I'm a little disappointed with the Oil Pan casting as it has some surface holes on it. I don't think it will affect operation but I was hoping to polish it up to simulate a chromed, tin pan rather than a casting. The metal is a heat treated aluminium that's supposed to machine nicely and I'm eager to make a start. I don't know how long it will take me to finish but I know it won't be for a long time. Fingers crossed, I'd like to have it running by Christmas 2015 but that may be unrealistic.
