thanks matt.the pieces i tapped i made from 3mm mild steel.the others were made from 2mm aluminum .i would have liked 3mm but the guy i get the offcuts was closed sat after dinner and i couldnt wait till mon morning till he opened again.the panel is 3 layers of 2mm stacked on top of one another.i cut the holes on the bottom panel so i wouldnt have to use as much adhesive.i might put a small rivet in it yet.
this morning i started working on the steering wheel resto.cut up a bracket to hold the wheel while im working on it.got it welded up.
the steering column is in primer now.tidied it up a little and put a rubber gromet in the hole where the horn wire comes out and thinking of a grease nipple where the bearing is in the bottom of the column.
my upholsterer is gone on a weeks holidays and will commence the seat next week.got some black vinyl last week and some foam.
gauges arrived back from the states yesterday after a rebuild.off to collect them .the panel with the cutouts was the solid panel till i cut it.over n out

You do some very nice work, and that always takes longer than you think it should.
Are you using the solid panel, not the one with the cut outs, now that you made the strips?

made up these two strips which i bonded with seam sealer to the underside of the grill drilled and tapped them so there is no fiddleing about with nuts and bolts now;

The taller front tires probably won't get here and mounted, until the end of next week.
