The beauty of using EnRoute is that these seemingly complex pieces can be made relatively simply. I only built the file once and then resized it for the three applications. Gluing the pieces back to back gave me the pieces I needed for the pump toppers and the sign. Multiple pieces, as required for this project are as simple as creating a copy and then nesting the pieces to fit on the Precision Board.
On this project the routed pieces were relatively small, but by using the router to produce the most complex parts it saved me a bunch of time over all. Using the router also ensured conformity in multiples. Using EnRoute allowed me to make these pieces NOT appear to be machine made.
The gas pumps were fashioned the same way as the car. A 'pencil rod' frame was welded over a simple structural steel. This would allow for safe transport and installation in one piece.
Before we started in on the paint I took it for a test drive to make sure it felt right. Stay tuned for some paint shots and the final installation...
