Assembling a Monocoque

I have been doing some work almost every day but it take time I just found that if I wanted a original steering wheel I had to go into the drawings and made it from scratch and so I did , with some help from Sweden with the laser cut aluminum. So this steering wheel is from the original drawings.

I'm not making for sale for the moment, I just want to make for my car , I also made my own handbrake system and are doing the seats . If you are going to make your own car it have to be real.

Just realize that I have one more monocoque in parts, one can call it a sub assembly some parts is spotwelded together . I thought it could be nice to have a spare chassis when I made the first one(made double), but it seems that I'm to old to start on a new car, so I think it must find a new owner somewhere in the homebuilders world. I see that the other car is plenty for a old man.

Finally my fuel tanks are completed I made them in stainless steel Total volume is approx 15 Gal . Enough for me , if bigger tanks is needed I can make them 7Gal. bigger/longer. Now it is only to fill up with the yellow race foam and install in car

All suppliers like those will have surely crazy prices because they think that GT40 "look like " originals" are "Gold "!
it is advisable to contact serious and good aluminium welders ( and there are a lot in UK ) like Racing fabrication,Radtec.co.uk, BMR or watever well known fabricator and they should be able to built with the proper drawing of sketch with dimensions a very nice item ( providing by themselves the core as most of them are suppliers of welding to core manufacturers like Pace cores or Pro Alloy and Docking Fabrications )
I guess price will be more than acceptable for sure
