    cheers all, mike couch deserves ALL the credit, i just make tea and drop stuff.
    Various tubes still to go in, behind seat, rear diagonal cross etc, we are going to lift the body off to do the rest.
    Seat arrived today so i can position it and lou in the car to work out the behind the seat bar.

    ^^^^^ cheers for the comments guys !
    .
    Got a bit done on the hinge supports, the 2 bolts on each hold a separate plate behind the glass which will be drilled/slotted to suit the hinges,
    I did it this way so the body will lift off and the glass will be held between the bracket and the hinge.

    Nice, that should help to support the hinges so they close better and dont drop as much.

    ^^^ cheers nige.

    bit more done,
    hinge thingys on the other side.
    .

    .
    thanks to mike couch once again, load more done on the cage.
    could not do the full cross between the rear supports due to there being not enough room with the seat and Lou in,
    .





    .
    still some bars to go in when the bodys off later on.
    .
    did the mounts off the cage for the body above the doors,
    this side is supported from underneath as planned,
    .

    .
    but the body flange is at an odd angle on this side so had to hang below the bracket,
    .

    .
    thats it for a bit .............
