Simply astonishing. Words fail me. Just gone through this whole thread and am totally in awe. Both inspiring and saddening when compared with my feeble efforts. Seriously good stuff Andy, can't wait too see the finished article. Top geezer!
Don't be put off by Andy's top notch efforts, there will always be better cars than yours, and there will always be worse.
As long as you build YOURS to the best of your ability, then it's still something to be proud of.
I'm not put off by it, it just makes me want to go back and do a whole lot of stuff a whole lot better. Just been looking at your build thread too, absolutely loving it!!! I am proud of what I have done so far but now know that it is far from perfect. My attitude has changed for the better as a result of seeing the incredibly high standards that others have achieved. I am also enjoying myself a lot more :tup:
Comments much appreciated. Mark right about cars and builds but great attitude Dave for wanting to continue to improve your build. I will look forward to your build updates. Andy
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. Andy
very very nice work andy :tup:
I love you work and your vision:tup:
Nice to see a plan come together and well executed
I wish you lived round here, i would love to see that in the flesh.
