Assembling a Monocoque

I have started to produce some outer stub axles and the flywheel. It is lots of programming to do before the machines can do the job. But it started well in the lathe. I will use 930 CV joints in both end now to start with, and might change to donut later.
My work now is sanding sanding sanding all day long.

Finaly I got my radiator, it is the closest you can get to the original without the Marston stamped on. It fit 100% in the car. It is made from old drawings. I'm happy that these good people did a excellent job on this semi original rad.

Then finally the Flywheel is complete just have to do a balance job and connect the starter ring. Also made the outer stub axles complete. So now lots of work is waiting for me in the work shop.

I will try to copy the willment car from 2004 . I like the way it is painted. And it is not so far from 1049.

I made my own seats for my 40 , but when gt40 builders in Scandinavia observed this I ended up with a lot of seats. It is good to be able to help some of the mono builders, since I had the drawing and tools. But it is time consuming to make them. So I go back to the car work.

Could you repost the first 5 pictures , as they don't come up anymore it says 404 error. That would be great . I like to see all your work it is paying off .
 
Brune,
Which section did you start with, and if you were doing it again would you start there.


I have been going through this in my head trying to work out which assembly gets done first.


At the moment I have started on 2049, but I'm not sure that was the best choice.
