Bob's GT Forte scratch build.

Hi Bob, it's your long lost lead guitarist!! The chassis is coming along brilliantly and looking great. I'm probably over in Timperley next Monday or Tuesday, are you up for a visit?

Cheers

Hi Stu great to hear from you on the forum.
Will be around on Monday let me know what time you are coming over.

Andrew, thanks for that.
I have been all over your build log looking at panels and pedals etc.
 
I am terrible at updating the build log Bob, so if you need more details just mail me.
You've made a good solid start.
It can be slow at times, but rewarding !

Took a trip down to Lee Dawsons yesterday to pick up some body panels.
Superb quality.
Now I have got them home and had a good look I am even more impressed.
Garage is looking a bit smaller though.

Hi Nick. Yes he really takes a pride in his work.
I wish I had taken some pictures of his moulds while I was there.
My iPad is having a rest from uploading pictures!? :furious:
Will upload some more later.
The dashboard is excellent.

Apologies for the intrusion, and I may have missed this, but how do you weld a chassis like that without a jig?
 
I believe all the parts have pins and locating holes align them, then tack and weld, pretty good idea. However I'm sure a much more qualified person will be along soon though to correct me :D

I'd like to believe it is that simple but I know it isn't.... If it is possible to weld an entire chassis this way, then I stand corrected, and amazed!

If it is done in a certain order so that each part stabilses the next then that's pretty clever!
