Master Car Plans
Updated December 7, 2016. 

 

There are a few clarifications in the new Masters Car Plans:

 

  1. No shaping of the shell is allowed (page 8 - third bullet point).
  2. Excess steering cable may extend past second ¼" cable clamp and may be removed by cutting. To avoid cable fraying it is recommended that you tape the ends. The tape can cover a maximum of 3/4" of the cable (page 41 - step #8.37).
  3. In regards to the front axle stack the top of the axle can be no higher than 3" from the bottom of the floorboard (page 27 - step #2.17).
  4. The entire exterior surface of the shell may be finished with solid sheets or decorative cutouts of self-adhesive vinyl material applied in a single layer (page 55 - #6).
