    is the top of the cage tied to the roof of the shell at all? if so diagonal bracing shouldn't be needed for those bars. very nice work on a part that didn't need to be that 'good' at all, as always
    keep it up, neil.
    need a job done on your project? i may be able to help.

    Mixed grille.....

    Some while ago I made this:





    It was a great idea, with the exposed 'round' bits emulating the original 7Y grille surround.
    My idea was to secure it with bonded-in bolts behind the orifice. I never really finished it as it was always...well...lacking something.

    Fast forward to the present day, and I had a great idea to mimic the flat screen surround with a rolled inner edge, and using the same threaded block/SS Stud fixings.
    So starting with a flat plate (which is actually two flat plates welded together):



    Then rolled the inner lip around various rods and bits of metal:



    Comparing with the original:



    Cut the 'crank handle' trim off the old one and welded it to the new one:



    Then welded on these small 8mm diameter bosses, tapped to 5mm with M5 Stainless studs:





    It's not fully finished yet. There's more cleverness to come!

    The last couple of bits for the grille are these:



    Made from 2mm plate, with short tubes welded on the ends they fit across the centre 4 mount studs like so:





    And add support to help keep the grille mesh in shape.



    The top one is very slightly longer than the bottom one as the grille tapers towards the bottom.
    Grille mesh is from the first (now aborted) attempt, and was originally from a waste paper bin.
