I have been using my Gas Cylinder from my Mig to make hoods and other cursed panels for years.
Just a word of caution, I found that even a run in the poorly painted cylinder will leave a mark in .040 aluminum.

Next there will be video on the home made (two pieces of angle iron in the vice) sheet metal break.smileys with beer

There was a gathering of the Okanagan clan of the BC Chapter. They came together to drink beer, tell lies, and drive the green machine! Tires were kicked, doors were slammed, and measurements were taken. Then they were off in a cloud of dust, to return to their shops and garages, re-inspired to continue the builds.

Who is having more fun than us?

A great way to pump up the enthusiasm on a blaw winter day. I know I'm going to put my head down and do something kart related even if I can't use my shop right now. Nice meeting the new ones and good to touch bases with the, well let's just say the more experienced ones.

Well, we now have enough members to host some good races.
But, the big race that faces us now, is to get some CycleKarts built.
For those of who enjoyed Don's wife's blueberry crumb cake yesterday the enthusiasm is definitely there.
So now we have some long winter nights ahead of us, to produce race worthy CKs by spring.
The "Building Race" is officially on!
Good Roads

Fun in the shop this afternoon/evening figuring out the rough body of the 28 "Uffindel" Austin Special. Those 12ft curved sections from a local scrappy will work soooo well. They have grooves on the top and bottom that the body will (probably) go in to. The bottom one will look like a sill and the upper a body line where to hood and trunk section go on. Not quite like the inspiration car but it'll hopefully uncomplicate the body build.
Yay me, time for beersmileys with beer

Way to go Martin!thumbs up
Those aluminium rails are things of beauty!
And I like the chalk outline on the floor, that is what my Belly Tank project looked like until John walked on it for a week??
Now it just looks like a week old crime scene.
The Model A wheels came in handy for mock up, but you hade best get your wheels and tires ordered up while you are away on the ship, because it looks like you will be wanting to drive your rolling chassis around in the dirt this coming spring.
Ed's farm roads really look inviting.
Stopped there for his garage and Farm Tour on the way home Thursday.
