Good work Charlie,  that turned out really nice!   If you ever need any help with your addiction like getting away from your  Rocket because your too close to the influence and might slip back a step or two in the program let me know I can store it here for you,  just sayin.....

Ray have you ever casted any aluminum before? 






No, I was responsible for leading the design team for Manganese steel castings for special track work for the railroads and spent a LOT of time in steel foundries and pattern shops all over the world.
I don’t really have much desire to do any kind of casting now  ;-)

The wheel and helm parts look awesome Charlie! I can't believe that's the same wheel. Good you guys found a center cap too.

Very nice Charlie. That should look great on the Rocket. Ray make sure you wash your hands before touching that wheel.

Clever!  I was gonna' ask how you manage to miss the original holes, but I see the marks.






Yeah, I mark the original holes so I can adjust as I go if I need to but they were dead on 1” apart so once I missed the first one I could just keep drilling.
