    I can also sympathise as I'm having "senior" moments with mine. It's only metal, beat it into submission!

    Positive thoughts please chaps or I'll end up with nothing to read whilst I eat my lunch.
    I do sympathise though, when it's cold and dark the shed just don't have that allure.
    Still some cracking progress Mike.

    ^^^^ cheers for the comments folks!
    .
    Got a bit more done today.
    There's no point in fabbing for the sake of it, so i wanted to try and use the engine mounts that i made for the Cannon, ive lifted the motor up to get the carbs/scoop at a "gasser type" height, so the theory was to just make some simple platforms for the motor to sit on.
    .



    .
    On the drivers side i decided to move the mount forward as much as i could, this will hopefully mean there is enough room to get the steering box in the perfect position for great geometry.
    I sliced up the old mount to re-use as much as i could.
    .


    .
    Just enough room for the filter and to get the bolts out,
    .

    .
    Fair bit of work but it will make a difference for sure , it will be more obvious when i do the steering box mount .

    Liking the engine mounts, I agree no point in re-making brackets when with a little enginuity this is what can be achieved

    This & Langys builds I love to read, no offence to anyone else's build threads on here as I read them all, but it's the banter that goes with these threads as well....great work.

    Who cares If It's glass or steel, It's still a hot rod.

    ^^ cheers for comments, all helps .
    .
    Had another xmas pressie for Lou delivered today !
    Huge thanks to Zane at Zannetec for the great service on the rear axle, new longer tubes, new ends and new shafts, top job !
    This was the axle off the Cannon but was way too narrow as that thing was virtually pro-street !!
    .

    .
    old shafts will now join the ever growing list of bits i cant use from the Cannon
    .
    First thing i did today was trim 1/2 inch off the bottem of the mid-plate , it was causing the motor/box to pivot at this point and was making it a pain to set up.
    The mid-plate will now bolt in on small brackets.
    Bit annoying as everything had to be realigned again
    .
    got a bit more done on the engine mounts,
    .





    .
    thats it for today,
