looking good.


But running the brake line in the chassis may be an IVA fail

Right hoping to make some progress on my build this weekend.
If my sheet of ali turns up I want to try and get the floor in!
With a good run at it I could even have it on its wheels! but lets not get carried away!

Well i finally got my floor cut, ordered the ali from aluminium warehouse which I liked as its all on line, uk delivery no messing and i think the price was reasonable £70 delivered for a large sheet, it came on a wooden pallet and was coated both sides with plastic.

Laid the sheet on my build table, placed the chassis on top and marked out the floor. 15 minutes with the jigsaw job done.

I got some sikaflex from screwfix and ordered some countersunk pop rivets, some people have reported the glass fibre side panels need a lot of work to fit so I think countersinking the rivets will make this a lot easier.

50 rivets later and I have RSI in my hand and the drills flat! should finish the job tonight.

Then, there might be a slight chance of getting it on its wheels and the engine and box in! Can't wait, that will be a massive milestone for me!

2500mm x 1500mm 2mm 5251 H22 (210MPa Tensile Strength) grade aluminium cost me around £35 from Aalco in Liverpool. I had to collect it though.

Still thats a good price you got.

The floor is in!
It only took about 150 pop rivets with a standard hand tool!

So surely it is time to get my chassis rolling??
I need to weld up the diff brackets
Cut slits in the handbrake bracket.
Other than that I think she is good to go.
Getting excited, dont want to be in work just at home working on the car!!
