Attaching the wheel covers. There's still some work to be done to align all the panel edges. I was going to keep the rear bodywork separate, to access the batteries, but gluing it to the roof, allowed me to smooth the panels together, more easily.
Battery access will be through the wheel covers. These are meant to double as wings during high speed flight.
Fitting LED strips to the front wheel covers. The glass panels just push in.
A quick update on the build so far. There is still some chassis flex, so the doors don't fit properly when its on it's wheels. I will reinforce the floor pan some more. Once the glass is in place, that will help too.
Unfortunately, I'll have to redo the yellow panel. The EL sheet is quite fragile. I tried to trim the edge down with a scalpel which was a mistake. It's better to cut with scissors, as it applies pressure on both sides. The scalpel only puts pressure from one side, causing the layers to separate, giving that messy edge. Done properly, it gives a nice even glow.
