Here's my progress on the Dodge, I bought and added an extra seat. In addition, various adjustments in the interior have been made with small rivets, paint, decals, and carpeting. I am now adding a NOS bottle to the trunk

Thanks, everyone!

The carpet comes from a Dutch webshop, it's super self-adhesive and quite thin. 0.85mm, therefore easy to process. It's not cheap, but I use a piece of 44×40 cm for two 1/8 models. I will probably also do the trunk floor with the remaining pieces.

The photo below is of a Pocher Lambo during construction, you can see the thickness of the carpet fairly well. I think it's a nice addition to a model, especially compared to a plastic floor

By the way, I removed some of the plastic left and right in front of the seats with a Dremel so that it becomes a smoother transition instead of a strange angle under the carpet.

Sure welcome, Phil.

Some other adjustments I have done, I replaced the black screws on the motor with stainless steel Allen bolts. The valve covers and blower fit perfectly, the pulley needs to be drilled out a little bit. I also sprayed the injectors blue, the block where the fuel lines go in black and I sanded off the seam on top of the radiator and resprayed it.

This is the link to the bolts I used, in case anyone is interested. They also sell rivets.

Excellent work on your build Dinky, all very neat and tidy with some really cool upgrades and adjustments. This will be a very nice model when it is finished I'm sure?!

Keep up the good work and keep posting - well done! Cool ThumpUp

Great to see this build coming together. Like you I have the Samba and it only just fits in my cabinet so would have a lot of trouble with the Charger. Excellent work. Following with interest. regards Andy. Did you finish the Samba?
