Kevin, the thing that your mech lost is the rear brake cylinder.

Guess you already ordered the oil seals. Sorry I was late, a bit of work piled up during cny holidays. The closest size I could find is 30*45*8 from a kia and datsun.

My Chain case Oil seals arrived from Birmingham UK. I guess I've sourced my parts every where in the world now.

I love the weird Wallace and Gromit stamps that says 1.46 Great British Pounds, never seen that before in here.

Spare front signal lamps wiring and adapter bought from Scott King of USA, he's the guy whos been featured in the articles as above.

My mechanic has given up on my car and mentions that incoming buses and trucks takes too much of my time and he wants to push me away to other mechanics, sadly!

So I'm looking to move my project to Ipoh and hope he can get it sorted out. He had fixed a S600 convertible belonging to Datuk Percy of Ipoh and he has 2 certificates from London about his mechanic skills, so I am convinced!

i hope so bro, i think im banging my head about to give up, lol

since i went to hong kong, i bought this for HKD95 (less than 10 USDs) to kill time, since i do build the real car. best part about the kit is that u can build any of the S cars u want, S500, S600 or S800.

Also met some other nostalgic car models and hot bunnies along the way
