Another day in the shop another progress report.
Made a front bumper, front radiator grill and a safety cage for the back.
The mufflers #2 and the air filters will go between the cage and the cabin.
Here’s a no measure way to make a grill, works for me any way.
Have a 1/8” spacer board on hand.
I glue up two different 1/8” thick woods and make bigger than need to be, and square up the board…
Mark the center of board
Set the table saw fence to cut center first.
Set the table saw up for a 1/8” deep of cut, just enough to cut through the first board.
Make first cut.
Stop saw and put the wood back in it’s last cut move the fence out so you can put in the spacer, lock fence and remove spacer.
Make a cut flip the board around and cut again.
Unlock fence add spacer and repeat as before till you’ve cut the whole grill.
Now cut grill to right size.
This will work for many cuts that need to be perfectly even cause just a slight difference and it just looks bad.
Here’s one of those places where 3 pictures say a thousand words. lol
I also glued up the front axial to the frame, I glues up all the back axial parts but will not glue to frame at this time.
I played with making a head lights and tried 3 or four different things but for now no joy on that front.
I made a wedge to hold the back axial in place till I really know what I want.
That’s all focks and hope some of you will have some use for this post.
