time to make the extension

im making a tad longer then at 1st desribed

my extension is 57mm, i need also to make left and right side the same shape as the side vanes

where im pointing is how i get me shape



here the 2 side are cut.noticed the shape



on the back of the cab i needed to add 2x backers using 2x peices of 060 plastic card



here i show the double backer on the back and i show the sideses on the cab



now put the cab back together the same way you took it apart

time for the bonnet



you cut straight across the mounting holes for the aero cap





ok under neath i just placed some backers.2x going diagnal to keep the cab squared



on the bonnet, the outer part i used 080 plastic card, sand alittle now before it becomes to much

on the corners i used 080plastic card , cut some lines evry 2.5 mm, then i curved them by popping each rib
on top i used anoth 080.you can see where i stopped on the egde.
