    I'm going to build another simulator. The first was super fun. Now it's not that hard anymore. Simulator also works super well with Dirt Rally. Go build exactly the same with a few tweaks.

    Most were indeed cut with the laser.
    Profiles with metal trimming saw.
    With a flex disk.
    Some things had been cutting a bit too long.
    Fermented in length. I abbreviated this with a flex.

    The laser cutting work Nauta Staal Sneek the Netherlands.
    Super friendly company. Can draw something with Freecad.
    And mail there. They cut it for you.
