Hi Matt, just been going through your build pics it looks like a really tidy build, but id like to know what trim you used for the tunnel? many thanks
Hi Chris.
The trim along the tunnel is 1.5 mm thick aluminium. I had some left over bits during my build so I cut them into 40mm strips and folded them over some 1" box. Them I re marked them and trimmed them back. Once that was done I then sanded the sharp edges down to a nice radius and wet and dry to a smooth even finish they a lot of hare work polishing. I then fixed them down to the chassis with some counter sunk m4 bolts This also passed the IVA for all the radius test. Hope that helps.
