Re: [DML] What I Did Over Thanksgiving

It was unbelievably difficult to take a Vitesse model apart and make a scale replica of the factory maze of ground jumper wires, using super thin black thread (to accurately represent undersized wire gauge of a real car), but the final result is impressively complex. Too bad it prematurely killed the miniature fuel pump motor.

Its fuel pump is acting up, but the owner is still able to drive his car a mile at a time by simply refilling the bowl manually from a scale model Coke bottle.
