Managed to grab a couple of hours out in the cave and did one of the rear side sections.

From what I can see that's probably about it.

Both rear quarters jigged and tacked both sides.

Image

Diff mounting box bottom section (RS1, 2 & 3), top section (RS4, 5 & 6) and reinforcing sections (RS7, 7a, 8 & 9) all jigged and tacked. The joints that will be between the top section and reinforcing sections were fully welded and ground back.

While still on the lookout for a suitable shed/garage I figured if I didn't get something done soon another summer will have passed by so have dug out the cheapy gazebo I bought last year, it really is cheap and nasty but will do for the next 2/3 months

Spent some time re-levelling the table frame with a water level and battening it out and them topped it off with 18mm hardwood ply. Expecting a new roll of plotter paper by Wednesday so all being well should have some steel laid down by the end of the week 8-)

Steady with the grinder in that tent Bruce or it will end up torched or looking like a colander

Hmm, I don't think it would take much Bob :roll:

The original plan was to use full size print outs of the chassis as templates. They printed out really nicely and spot on, I spent a while stitching the two halves together and tacked it all down to the table, then checked all the dimensions including the diagonals and called it a day. Unfortunately the following evening the paper had seemed to expand slightly causing a slight ripple.

I think the problem was that in my 'tent' its exposed to cooler damp air during the night and during the day its like an oven in there. While possibly not that bad it was enough to cause me a little doubt so out came the drawing instruments and I marked the table up manually.

So far so good, everything is fitting together spot on but I've gone as far as I can for the minute as the area outside my man cave door needs the paving slabs sorting out, the ones that are there are all over the place due to roots and there's still a large unfinished gap between the cave door and the first slabs making it a right mission to wheel the welder in and out of the cave. They're the the large thick council style ones :roll:
