thanks again for the compliments, this has been a fun build for me.

The foam in the rear stabilizer is a bit of flexible packing foam, like breakable stuff comes wrapped in. I save everything! I wouldn't use that again for that kind of work, it was actually too thick. I will build up the stabilizer with layers of card I think. I just got a supply of heavy 'chipboard' they call it, off ebay. Kind of like the backs of writing tablets in different thicknesses.

The clamp? The piece between the windshield parts? That's just a piece of thin aluminum cut to a Tee shape.

I must try the layered wheels sometime. I just got lucky on this one and had wheels that worked. By the way, I do use used meat trays. Just wash them with hot soapy water and they are fine. Also, the foam inside foam core board is great stuff. Wet the paper and it will peel right off, leaving a nice foam that can be carved and worked and used for lots of things.
