arms to be done to steer wheels
[Image: dscn1922.jpg]
both in place
[Image: dscn1923.jpg]
tiny part of wood added on top of arm for extra strength
[Image: dscn1924.jpg]
part to join track rod end added
[Image: dscn1925.jpg]
both sides of wheels hooked up, steering rod/bar joined, test fitted, works perfect
[Image: dscn1926.jpg]
[Image: dscn1927.jpg]
[Image: dscn1928.jpg]
front frame temp fixed on body so it can be married with the rest of Y frame
[Image: dscn1929.jpg]
checking gaps in wheel arches and frame position in front....OK, just like the look of this :driving1:
[Image: dscn1930.jpg]
wheels sits perfect all around, its time to have one proper Y frame chassis
[Image: dscn1931.jpg]
creating base plate that will join both frames permanently together, in real life I guess it's called fuel tank closing plate
[Image: dscn1932.jpg]
wood strips glued together and sanded, ready to be attached
[Image: dscn1933.jpg]
when was removing complete Y frame chassis decided to remove front luggage compartment and make it better after steering is sorted out
[Image: dscn1934.jpg]
adding extra strength and extension to steering wheel so it can reach front steering mechanism
[Image: dscn1936.jpg]
[Image: dscn1937.jpg]
decided to add extra support for steering column, in meantime created extra DMC signature at the front, it will be barely seen when front luggage compartment will go in, looks cool tho
[Image: dscn1938.jpg]
support wall installed
[Image: dscn1939.jpg]
cutting to add
[Image: dscn1940.jpg]
steering done and working, small tweaks and details to be added to permanently finish
[Image: dscn1941.jpg]

In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are not.
for past few days there was good few trials and errors on front lights. Wanted to get best possible result of the looks of the front lights.
So here it goes...
Started with this, my good old friend Arthur Guinness came in to workshop to give us a hand on project
[Image: dscn2016.jpg]
it got cut in pieces
[Image: dscn2017.jpg]
made some clever tool
[Image: dscn2018.jpg]
did some mirror shine polishing
[Image: dscn2019.jpg]
used my new cool tool and hammer to make some cool stuff
[Image: dscn2020.jpg]
and I have shiny reflectors for my lights
[Image: dscn2021.jpg]
looking good
[Image: dscn2022.jpg]
time paint background black
[Image: dscn2023.jpg]
[Image: dscn2024.jpg]
clear plastic saved from flowers used for glass imitation...lines cut with paper knife
[Image: dscn2025.jpg]
vola, 2 lights done so far
[Image: dscn2026.jpg]
will be adding another cool feature
[Image: dscn2027.jpg]
here's lights in action with dimming control
The level of detail is amazing, love the lights!

[Image: dscn2029.jpg]
back wall of trunk goes in
[Image: dscn2030.jpg]
[Image: dscn2031.jpg]
and floor...with correctly positioned spare wheel space...front wall to be added...all to be primed and painted in glossy black paint
[Image: dscn2032.jpg]
