Looks gorgeous.

Probably ought to have the engine hatch ajar, since the jack is stowed back there.

Procedurally, if a lone driver, I would have dismounted the spare before jacking the vehicle--less weight is less weight, and less height the heave the spare up, too.  That's just me, I may have changed too many flats out in the mud and off road.

How did you "deflate" the tire?  The look is just right (one I remember all too well from bias-plied tires on my VW microbus).

 

Really has the right amount of grime, so the look is great.

Nice work.

You showed many clever tricks. The flat tire procedure is very interesting, thank you for sharing it.

This is a great idea. I am wandering what is the role of the superglue in step 2? Is it to soften the edges?

then you also know that there are two types of rubber, those in resin and rubber, the two procedure goes well for those in rubber that if you do not stick to the styrene and then the models remain inactive and do not have the effect of rubber deflates , different for those in resin because once removed all the resin (I have also used my drill with dentist tip) once crushed maintain their condition. that's all !

I hope I was clear .
