Hi Robert,
thanks for the nice words from the "Master" :P :P
Here i made some holders for the tracks on the front plate. For more strength and better hold i soldered pins into slots of the holders and glued them into holes.

Hi Derek,Robert and Dave,
thank you all for your compliments.
The next are the mud guards. The checker plates are glued on and than the holes for the rivets and screws are drilled and afterwards are mounted.
The halfes of the hinges are mounted and also new holders for the mud guards are built.
