Started on the chassis today something I hate doing body filling and sanding. I'm glad I never became a panel beater because I suck at it. Got sick of hand sanding so went out and purchased a few new toys, a triangle detail sander made life a little easier & heat gun to warm things up to help cure the bog a bit quicker.

Found it allot easier to bend by hand once it was cut into 3, Photo 1 Two plates bent by hand seems to be fitting ok, Photo 2 Three plates bent it got alot harder to bend how I miss my workshop, used a wooden deck chair to bend the last one amazing what comes in handy when you don't have the correct tools like a roller. Photo 3 tack welded the bent pieces together.

Now for the hard part the gearbox tunnel photo 1 show the cardboard profile first attempt. Photo 2 shows the finished template. Photo 3 sheet metal cut out first problem arose, how do I bend it I tried several ways using ratchet straps failed miserably. Ended up cutting it into 3 strips.
