a little bit of metalwork, be purchased some scraps
of 1.2mm aluminium so that we can make the wheel arch's
and wings. This proved to be quite a time consuming
task, the first wheel arch took about twice as long
as the second, but of course we new what we were doing
Because of the
initial haste of gluing all the wooden parts together,
it came to fixing the wheel arch's in to place, it became
apparent that the bonnet cross beams are only secured
after the wheel arch's have bee secured due to the restriction
in getting the pop riveter in place, because of this
we had to make a fold of the aluminium and rivet
from the side, no big issue really.
For all of the aluminium to wooden
joints we made good use of black PU adhesive, this stuff
is extra double strong, flexible and relatively cheap at
the same time.
