I'm impressed by the driver's cab and attention to detail in it. You've done some things really well, and others are a bit rough. But you can certainly use the "built not bought" moniker on this one!

I just use what ever is around and don't spend to much on bits. Impatience
on wanting to finish is my undoing.

At least you get it done instead of waiting for a perfect solution that may never arrive.
