Made a kind of housing for the cranck on the front cover plate,also finished the front face of the grille,to get the raised edge around the opening i used an old serving tray,cut out the middle and made it smaller and shorter........bit of bondo did the rest.

I glassed the cowl(have to do more layers from the inside and laminate the wood in)and a side panel which opens to start the engine.
The louvres are a panel from a builders market,i am going to blend it in with some bondo,the hinges are fom an old wardrobe door.

Small update,Have'nt done much on the CK,health is much worse as expected and i have to go for another surgery,the doctors are not sure if the cancer is totally removed from my bladder so they want to do it again.
First i have to do another chemo treatment and afetr that surgery,don't know when it happens but probably next month or so.
Feeling weak now and can't do much on the CK.
However i have put new spokes into the rims,fitted the front brakes and now busy making a handbrake lever which i can lock,so when the CK engine starts the front brakes are on,if the lock is lifted the lever can be used as a normal front brake.
The rear brake will be a discbrake used with a footpedal.
Thats all for now,René
p.s.
To entertain myself i have bought a new puppydog,a boxer..........my other boxer loves his new babybrother and it is a joy to watch them play all day.

Glad to hear you're keeping a positive attitude with all you've been going thru this year Rene.
That's probably half the battle. Even with all your problems, you're still getting ten times more
done than most of us.
Love the new pup, good thing they get along so well. Our puggle is jealous of any other dog
that comes near me or my wife.
Wish the best for you and hope you get some good news soon.
