    Post by stevie b on Wed Mar 28, 2012 6:23 pm

    Hi everybody,



    Here's some pics of my 007 DB5, they are mainly of items I've modded, I shall post pics as I either mod new parts or retrieve old pics, anyway lets get started:

    Front calipers painted a one-off bronze/copper colour





    footwells carpeted using sticky-back black felt





    headlining re-covered in black faux suede





    rear shelf speaker surround painted silver and part way through covering in black faux suede





    rear number plate light holder filled in, with black highlighting and lights repainted in





    Sound deadening fitted to bonnet





    fine stainless steel mesh fitted to bonnet scoop





    rear axle repainted gloss black, I decided mine would have a alloy diff cover to keep the diff oil cool, I also made a oil drain plug and top-up plug too





    lined inside of boot and boxed in rear number plate







    Comments good or bad are welcome,



    Steve

    Recieved my latest load of parts today, so made a start on the transmission shaft, I painted the main body gloss black and the slip yoke I did in metallic silver, looks much better now:





    Also painted both of the rear calipers a one-off colour to closely match the front ones:

    Rear axle assembled, fitting the wheels was rather tricky!

    Just a quick update on a new part I've modded ( thanks to Kev for the idea )



    Drivers side rear light unit fitted in place, I've painted the backs of the lights gloss black to replicate the originals, then added a small piece of tubing to make the oil spray jet more realistic and painted it silver.

    Afternoon Guys, heres afew piccies of the replica compressed air tank I've fitted in the boot of my DB5 after I saw some pictures on the internet of the stunt DB5 that was used in the film.

    Ok so I started off with a empty CO2 cylinder from a gas air rifle which was just the right sort of size for what I wanted:



    I decided to paint it matt grey and then made a 'Warning' sticker for it, I had to cut out a section of the boot floor for the tank to sit low enough down so the boot would close, this acted as a mounting for the tank too, I then strengthened the underneath of the boot floor. I also carpeted most of the boot out too:



    Lastly I used some old LEGO air tube and some tie-wire to make the pipework up that comes out of the tank, I originally wanted to run the pipe to the far end of the boot, but could not due to the shield holder, so I instead ran it into to recess in the boot floor and out of the side cut-out, I'm still really happy with it and it's something a little different mod wise:
