And a little something that popped up on the local ad site here.  A complete and brandnew Lambda in parts for 10 Euro, I just could'nt resist...

Lucky you, it's an old model but quite wonderful. I too have one to build but have held off because I can't establish to my satisfaction the correct factory colour for the bare monocoque. It c an be built so the body slides off to reveal the monocoque like this. The question is, are you going to convert it in to a two seater?

It is a nice model, maybe I should assemble it one day.  And no, will not alter it to a two seater...

After another day of making cardboard templates, and discovering the car is not exactly symetrical (so no shortcuts are to be taken....) I got the alu panels in place...

Two cars for the price of one!  The big screen still needs fitting its messing frame.  Have to figure out height first as it will be a very tight fit in the back I discovered....

Bit more done on the window frames...
I was thinking if the seperate windows could have been lowered, so I fitted the wiper motor for a 'seating' test.  This confirmed (luckily) that I may not lower the windows any more, as then the wiper motor would be too much in the line of sight.

While at it I started fiddeling with the electrical wire to the motor, and made some (tiny) brackets to fit it.  I first fed the wire through a rubber grommet, but this was not very nice, so a little alumunium plate was hammered, feeding out the cable flat and giving a nicer touch (I think)
Al the alu will be painted in body coulour, the steel parts will be nickel plated.

More work done this week is blasting and painting of the seat frames, and making the ALU back panel for the passenger seat.

Hopefully tomorrow more work on the window frames!

Today some work done on the full width screen.  Find the appearance quite heavy, maybe it's the colour of the messing.  The messing profile is 20x20mm.  I wanted 18x18mm, but that does not exist....and 15x15 mm I found a bit thin on top....
Off course it's just for the rainy days or long trips...I guess it will be spending most of its time locked behind the seats....

Another interesting activity in the workshop today: my girl making honeycomb in wax for the bees....I'm still looking for radiator honycomb, sadly this won't work!
