Well its back to the plan. Since I needed to make a few end panels the same shape for the door frames I decided to make a jig out 8mm flat bar. I used 1.2 mm steel for the entire inner frame work/panels. The only job left is to weld the frame to the cross members.
Well the plan was to build the e wheel and then finish off the door inner panel and then continue with the wire buck/roof. But once I had finished the e wheel I wanted to have a go so had a bash at the bonnet cowling which made of aluminium.
I am going to have to do some work on the roof at some stage before I can finish off the wire buck. For this I will need an English Wheel and I could not find any in the UK that I liked. So I end up making my own adjuster and frame but the anvils/top wheel came from US.
Thanks to the following:
Kerry Pinkerton for the e wheel adjuster article/design.
Richard Ferguson for the stiffness calculation spreadsheet.
Peggy at Hoosier Profiles for the excellent service.
With the hinge in place I mocked up the front part of the door inner frame so I could finish the wire frame for the front wing/bonnet section. The reason for the mock-up section was just to get the profile shape because I am in two minds whether to make the frame/body out of aluminium.
