Good timing, i've just bought some of these chassis. Up till now I've scratchbuilt chassis for Macs bodies.

I've also used nostalgia bodies from Oz, cheap but less detailed and a long waiting list but they do make some cars Mac doesn't (yet).

Now, if only we could make it sound like a 1:1 V16

Hi EM,

I've just started to put one of my monoposto chassis together. I want to use trailing guides from Patto They have 3/16" posts. You're right about the steel being hard to drill and there's not much metal to spare. i'm just about to start cutting the chasssis into its component parts. I'm expecting to go through a lot of cut off discs.

Hi Alan,

The guide hole for trailing guides needs to be drilled out to 3/16", there's just enough metal, or as suggested earier in this thread, you might want to add an alternative guide tongue. On some of the shorter wheelbase cars I had to grind away an arc at the front of the main chassis for clearance for the trailing guide.
