Managed to get all parts, except body panels ready for assembly. From that point build starts to go fast. Tamiya Photo-Etch parts are very nice too. Found PE body fasteners on the small fret with seat belt hardware. I thought they were only simulated by decals. Was I nice surprise. Glued them on. They look great, IMO. Also attached radiator faces, pedal details, brake rotor and hubs details and last bit of heat shielding over gearbox.
Attached water pipes and throttle linkage to engine. And finally mated engine and gearbox. Then put exhausts in place. No issues there. Drive train is basically complete now. Will work on front suspension and monocoque next.
