Yep, they are for an RS60 spyder (x12!). Hoping to cheat a bit and also use the drawings (filled in black) to make photo-etched spokes. Much as I love airbrushing, Illustrator has changed my draughting life...I can draw all the parts using my own measurements and scale them down to model size, with ease. Can also multi-layer them so I can check all the components will fit together before I start bodging away in metal/plastic/resin. Just about drawn the whole car now using around 90 layers! All the parts are made by hand - no CNC!
Here's the blueprints for the front and rear drums combined:

Tony, I must also thank you for being a major influence on my automotive obsession... you are solely responsible for this sillyness!
Impressive work. I beleive Ibsenop also work with Illustrator and he has done some incredable 4-way plans of cars.
I have told Ibsen some time he should draw the Jaguar XJ-13...but I understand he may not have the time.
(I have never seen a 4-way plan of the XJ-13).
At my job I have worked in Inventor for many years. (glaced in balconys).
When at school learning Inventor I had a Matra motor (1/12 scale in pieces-Tamiya) I measured and put it together in 3-D. It was amazing fun to see it take life on
the monitor. (I have my work on CD somewhere...no interior).
I have also drawn Porsche 550 Spyder...Porsche 718 RSK...Ferrari P3/412P (wich James Glickenhaus used as an inspiration rebuilding #0854...thankyou James) among others in AutoCad.
Well...I am bragging a bit...but this is one of the best threads here I think.
Please Duffer...show me more of your work.
