    Here goes then... Had some better weather so I was able to get some fab done!

    4 Bars all done




    fabbed the panhard rod mount




    And finally the re-make of the bat-wings








    So I quickly put one on to try and see how she looked.








    Looking good if I say so myself.




    Even got enough clearance on full lock (without bending the steering arms!)








    Nothing else for it now but to “Z that chassis to get it under!



    I decided to cut it like “Mart” did, so firstly I scribed my cut lines








    After a sweep with the cutting disk…




    There’s no turning back now!




    Just a bit of tidying up to do and removing the bits of left over “K” member








    Back out to the Pop again to position the axle.








    That’s it laid in place, as you can see it needs a bit of a lift.










    That's it for today - out of time! I will post the next installment soon.

    Cheers. Tim.

    Hi Tim,
    Very good I'll agree, talk about dive in the deep end, still making good progress. I can't see some of the pics as my filter won't allow it , so I'll have another look tomorrow at work,

    It took me quite a while to actually put the disk to the chassis, I think I re-measured at least 4 times!!

    Cheers. Tim

    Right here we go again, as you saw from the last picture I needed to lift the chassis front section about 3” luckily I had some 80 x 40 box salted away from a job long ago so I dug down in the back of the shed and found it out. I cut two lengths and off we go.








    looking good and giving the right amount of clearance for the axle.




    With a bit of shaping I end up with this.




    Clamp them on and see how it looks.




    Clamp the chassis on as well.





    Make up a little shaping plate as well.




    And I’m ready to fly – so to speak!




    Tack and check




    Looks good.




    That’s more like it, looking like a chassis again!



    One side fully welded.




    All boxed at the top and then I ran out of gas – Doah!!




    Me gas has turned up so let’s hope I get some dry time at the week-end!

    Cheers. Tim.

    Thanks Steve, I must admit sometimes I feel I spend more time moving my tools about than working!

    I managed to get a little dry time over the weekend...



    No I haven't decided to build a gasser, it's so I can plate up the bottom!

    Got this far...






    That's as far as I got. My camera seems to be full of pictures of my first grand child now so it may be a few weeks before I get back on to the Pop!!!!

    Yeah of course you have the same problem glyn I admire you guys working outside. When I got my first ground up build I had an old asbestos garage that turned out not to be big enough so I built a garage before I started work on the pop

    As you can see with the pop back against the workbench the chassis rails stuck out past the door
