Another Super Seven (Part 2)

Kit / Model  

Seven Based Custom

Manufacturer  

Scratch

Item Code  

Scratchbuilt Seven

Scale  

1/12

Description  

Finished up the cam cover.

Before I could fully finish the shape of the rear of the hood, I needed a cowl piece to mate it to. The cowl is made from the same piece of brass as the hood.

I made some intake horns with mounting flanges so I could mock up/measure the spacing and location of them and the carbs in relation to the hood and determine where to cut the hole in the side of the hood. The intake manifold and carbs are measurements I have, plus I have a few finished Sevens I can measure from too.

Before I cut the hole in in the hood, I made ribs to add some rigidity to it and soldered them in. I also did a little more work to true up the fit to the cowl.

I have added the fittings for the PCV line and a made a “710 cap”…
Here is the basic cowl shape cut from the sheet.
I hammered over the front edge and reinforced it with solder. Relief cuts were made into that flange to allow the shape to match the hood starting at the top center and working outward.
Then a lip for the hood to sit on was formed and soldered on while shaping it to match the hood.
Another arch was made of brass rod and set inside the lip with solder.
Still a little more work fitting the cowl and hood together, but they are coming along…
Machined aluminum intake horns.

Reinforcement ribs added to the hood.
I cut the hole for the intake. Still need to do some surface work, but it is stable now.
