Bloody Mary
« on: 20 June 2020, 10:22:47 am »
I have been steadily doing bits and pieces to my tribute to the Bolster car. Far from complete, but most bits are here. Front axle made with stubs, pedal assembly many have already seen, here's the expose of the body tub.
As with my version of Kim it's a plywood  tub, clad with thin gauge alloy on the sides and a formed top.
The big question, will I keep it or is someone wanting to take it over.

That's looking excellent. A quick question do you stick the aluminium to the plywood or just mechanically fix it here and there?

Re the big question, keep it, drive it, enjoy it, improve it...rinse and repeat until someone makes an offer you can't refuse. (please note I didn't say finish it because we all know they are never really finished)  ;D

The alloy skin is only fastened WITHOUT mechanical fastening, just like the JC Midge was. Evilstink.
