Nice work TT, your chassis is really starting to "come together" now


I,m thinking ...........when your Roadster is finished & on the road, you,re gonna have a battle between your "young uns" who gets to go for a spin first

Its great that the boys are so helpful & enjoy mucking in with your build

look forward to seeing photos when she,s rolling.

cheers
andy

Toby told one of his class mates that we were building a car in the garage, he did not belive him.

So I printed a couple of pics for him to put in his school bag

Probably more of a hinderance, but hopefully it will get them interested in something more worthwhile than football or gamez conoles.

7:15 PM start fitting driveres side tunnel and floor. Including spreading the evil gunge, loading the rivets ( tapping in the stubborn ones ) and popping them.

Drilled the seat mounts through floor, added extra rivet holes for seat mount rails, and rivited..

9:15 PM glass of wine



Next task is the seat back, but I need another tube of evil gunk for that.

One could say, you have had a riveting evening

At least each panel you fit means one less to go, keep at it & it will soon be done

I am managing to cross off one small job from the list most day's.

Like a butterfly me .... Flitting from one thing to another

At least the build is going in the right direction.

Tonight...

Drivers bulkhead lined up and a few welds put in, need to clean up a bit more before finishing the welds. Will try and get that done tomorrow.

I checked that the pedal box had a chance of fitting and it was spot on just need to drill the hole for the master cylinder. and the mounting holes.

Last on tonight's list was getting the rear tub panel into place, it had previously been trial fitted, but now with the ally tunnel and Deamon Gunge it would not fit, so a little metal was removed to get it to slide in.

Sounds like you are coming on nicely TT

Glad you have made that post about you evening's work as it has reminded me of a couple of small jobs that I can get done whilst waiting to paint to harden

Got some packs of fitting on order and a Rivnut Gun.

Tonight I made the hole for the master cylinder, and yesterday not a lot..

Little steps, chipping away..
