I finally finished my Sauber C29. I had one problem after another, much like the season Sauber has.
I used a F60 body but when I cut the motor cover, I cut out too much. I tried to fix it with a custom motor cover which did not turn out as well as I hoped for.









I still need to find a picture of the new steering wheel layout and I want to paint the muffler area black. Since the C29 has now has changed some of the logos, I might have to do a second one, but I am not really impressed with the F60 body and the fit around the top air intake.

You need an F103 body. F104 bodies are very narrow, and long.

How did you do the carbon fiber look on the front suspension arms? Sticker, paint or aftermarket piece that I'll now have to buy?

I used Tamiya carbon fiber sticker #84035. They are okay but I am looking for something more authentic than Tamiya or Parma.

Cross makes an Indi car body, but noting that is current, and it only fits on the 103L.
