Update Information

Here then is a close-up of the forward area - again, hoses and cables attached to moving items are rigged with a spline deformer to keep them that way with suspension movement. In fact, the entire suspension system is fully rigged on this now - I needed to adjust the ride height of the car before I started the cabling work (since I wasn't sure how far I was going to take the rigging at that stage). In the end it made sense to rig it fully, and it is tied in to sliders now for adjustment. The steering is also set up like that, although I'll have to modify that expression a bit to include the steering wheel when I have modelled it (or rather, them, since there are two different shapes).
