Changing Gears

Since the car will be used in a production of "Wind in the Willows" it was decided that it should be a four-wheel vehicle rather than a three-wheel vehicle. In keeping with all the research I've done on Benz and his early motorcars, I decided to go with something that looks like the 1899 Benz Rennwagen:

"Rennwagen" means "Race Car" in German. In addition to four wheels, you'll note that there are boxes enclosing the motor and a front box enclosing unknown items. This actually saves time, since I won't have to make a detailed replica of the motor. Instead, the rear box will contain the electric motor guts and batteries. Here is a Sketchup that is getting close (it does not have fenders, and the front box still needs work):
