Good to see her back on the forum Pugs. I am excited to see you back to work on her.

Crazy project to take on when you know nothing, eh?
I wouldn't call that lid low crown, at least not the whole skin. What I see looks to be a nice end result and if you learned a lesson, that was bonus. Its not like you're on a clock at home and all any man can do is what he believes is right at the time. I don't see anybody asking how long what took and stuff. You sure picked right up on the shaping and I know I appreciate tips you pass along concerning that.

I'll post a few pics of the chassis in case you're wondering on the next upcoming posts when you see it and no progress posts on it.


I used stainless steel for everything. Since I built it, I have discovered that it may work harden and get brittle as it vibrates. I'm talking the metal itself, not the welds. The chassis will be scrapped and a new one will be made later from mild steel and probably powder coated.

I don't have words for that one but am uninjured. The steel one will be just as remarkable, of that I am sure. Maybe a way to re-purpose this will come to you. Keep an eye out for that, and keep going.

I just have a feeling that in some roundabout way, your build will get a boost from whatever happens to that chassis. I mean if nothing else, you have your 3D blueprint so you know what to cut to get busy. Move on along, no wallowing in disgust. The day when the past thing is out of your hair, your enthusiasm for what is to come will be catalyzed by that. Regardless, it is a beautiful design. That won't change. But to really go to town on that body, you know you gotta spit out a chassis. I have faith. Force some momentum before it gets too cold out because you will wither and perish without something juicy to lay hands on.
