Finished the rear support bracket today, the bracket is made of 1.6mm sheet steel and will support both the rear hatch and the diffuser.

09-03-2014 12:43 PM Roof/Hatch
I needed to box in the roll bar for the interior finish and the original plan was to weld the Jaguar and Audi roof/hatch together but this could give me access problems later. So I decided to make the hatch part removable. Since there will be no boot just a parcel shelf and also because the two panels are different shapes in both directions I decided to make the hatch a bolt in/out affair. So I needed to flange the roof end section and to machine two locating lugs/pins. The lugs are to be welded to the hatch and the 16mm diameter tapped pins will be welded to the roll bar. The next job is to flange the hatch and make the rear support brackets.

Because of the height/location of the bulk head the roof angle ended up wrong. I made up a couple of jigs, the one made of angle was to help hold the shape of the roof before cutting and during welding and the MDF one was to form the new shape at the back of the roof.

07-12-2014 03:57 PM Inner door metal work
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.
