Thanks Ian, I'll pop to Halfords tomorrow and get some.Trev,
You may already know this but to clean the ali panels, Andy S recommended T-Cut. Works a treat at much reduced cost compared to aluminium polish. Also works really well on the polished panels. I had a few scratches and the T-Cut took them all out.
Can't see properly, but it looks like you have not put any flooring under the rear either side of the engine bay. You might want to consider it.
Sorry John, you've lost me a little. I've cut the templates to the size in the manual. Should I hold off cutting the ally and get the fuel tanks mounted first?Hi Trev,
Congratulations on your build, I have come to a stand still with my build due to my work and the end of the financial year. So little progress for me for the next two weeks :-(
On the templates that you have made, watch our on the side sills for the return by the fuel tank it needs to return so you can fix it to the plate(if you can know what I mean) otherwise you will not be able to rivet it,
Just thought I would point it out before you cut the ally..
Keep up the hard work,
Hi Bill, yeah I did think last night that I should write down all the measurements so that everything matches when it comes to cutting the ally. The plan at the moment is to make a few more templates tomorrow and Saturday and then cut all the panels on Sunday and Monday so I am not leaving the card templates too long.Trev,
I also found that if any time at all lapses between the template and the cutting of metal that small details will slip away, so write it down on the template. Its better to get it right, rather than have to make compromises or second cuts. As you can guess, some of the angles and positions are a little difficult to transpose. Use the paper to get the proper measurements, transfer to the cardboard and see how it fits. Some of the placements of the stiff boards will tell you how difficult it will be to place the panel. Then cut the metal.
