Bad part is I used up all my 3/4 inch square tubing. Now I have to wait
again for a while. But the good part is: I have finished the inner rails
that will define my trunk space and a panel between the top of the
trunk area to where the cab and back window will appear some day.
Photos will show where I have a 6 inch wide panel under the trunk area,
and a cross bar where the latching system will be located. Also 1 more
cross bar defining the panel between the top of the trunk area and the
cab and back window. This also divides that area from the trunk and
seating area inside the body. I figured out what I wanted to do to
terminate the inner rail going to the door beginning. I played around
with a bunch of ideas but settled on this one in the photo. I ended up
with a short piece of 3/4 inch tubing 6 inches or so long angled
outwards towards the door post stopping 2 inches short of the door post.
This way I will not have to put any fancy metal embossing or raised
what- evers on the door to match the rear if I had continued the rail as
it was. I had exactly a 2 inch piece of tubing left over so I am happy
that I used every available inch of that costly tubing. I have yet to
cut the last pieces of the inner rail off from where the angled
termination ends. I will look at it later to see what i need to do here.
I have some photos coming and you all can figure which is which. I also
cut the curve for the Body cab corners from the existing plywood 2 ft
curve and the photos will show where i intend to use these curves. I cut
out just the part of the curve that i need. I will reverse the ply wood
form for the other side. I have a photo showing some of this. So far I
have used every bit of the one 4x8 sheet of 1/3 inch plywood. And have
recycled the curved and straight pieces to use again. I am pleased I
don't have to buy any more plywood it cost like hell and it warps as
soon as you get-em. Not like 25 years ago when plywood came and stayed
straight and was glued with proper glues for the extremes etc. Anyway I
have used up all my resources so far. But I still have some flat steel
to do my doors etc.
