Hi Paul. Looks like we're thinking along the same lines.
This is the special that I'm using for my inspiration car.
You're taking a difference approach to your frame than I am
by fabbing all of your frame rail. What gauge is the sheet?
I'm using straight sections of 14 ga. 1x3 in most of it accept
for where the kickups are needed and that is 14 ga. sheet.
What are your plans for the rear axle? It looks like you are
holding pretty true to the original frame and might be planning
for rear suspension??? Not true to the original Riley, I put a
kickup at the rear also to run a solid axle mounted thru the frame
rail, at least for the time being.
How did you determine the frame width looking down on it?
It appears to have a rather curvy shape much like a Bugatti
frame.
I couldn't find any top views of the Brooklands Monoposto
so I'm simply using a parallel 20" frame section and stepping
it down to a 16" width in front of the Swans Neck.

Frames were cut from 5mm plate and then bent. The tops and bottoms were cut from 3mm and cut and bent to suit. I will send you the original drawings and layout pics. I will have active suspension on the front abd fixed rear end because of the chain drive.

Now wouldn't you love to have one of these in your back yard
for those times you'd like to take the Riley out for a spin.

Now that ghost must have erased it.
It's a Klausen Pass with a view to die for.

Chassis plates have had their top and bottom plates added to form the C chassis shape. Not the greatest welder in the world but it is solid and tidy. Only short welds to stop heat distortion. They are incredibly stiff now.
