      The first chassis tube is in place! :)

      In preparation for the chassis construction, I first leveled my old vertical mill. This will make it a lot easier to get the correct angles of the tubing notches.

      After that I used the info from my CAD model of the chassis to cut and notch the rear floor transverse tube, which is the one most logical to start with. I had to think a few times to make sure that all the angles were correct and pointing in the right direction. To my surprise, I got it right the first time! I just had to sand the notches a little bit to get a nice fit. Not only did it fit well, it ended up perfectly aligned and in the correct position too! I used both lasers to position the tube before tacking it in place.

      This feels really nice. Now I have a good base to build from!

      Rocker panel mods!

      The front end of the rocker panels need to be pie-cut to fit the frame design. Naturally the inner support structure needed a little relocation too. Now one side is almost ready for the square tubing that will be welded to the rockers.

      Yesterday I received the digital spirit level I had ordered a while ago. I also bought a used fresh air welding helmet, which will be good for my health. I will also use it as a grinding mask. Right now if I use a dust mask in combination with the reading glasses I now require (I'm getting old...) and protective glasses, the glasses fog up in less than a minute. Hopefully the new welding/grinding helmet will mean that I don't need a common dust mask. I learnt from the guy I bought it from that if you fart when you use it, it will be highly unpleasant... The filter is located right above your butt!

      Haha, yeah I guess it was a good warning! He also recoommended the activated carbon filter. Then you can fart all you want!

      Thanks Wayne!
