Thanks. I made everything (except the headlights) out of different types of wood using the woods natural colours and finished them with Danish oil .

My biggest problem with the deuce and a half was working from imperial measurements and constantly having to convert to decimal. About half way through I started using imperial which I just should have done in the first place .

This site provided invaluable information.
