New World Record!

Two shed nights in a row!

Gearbox mount is done, although it looks nothing like what it did yesterday.  I figured out that flipping it upside down (in concept) would mean that I could take advantage of the strength of the small tube, and make the whole thing a lot lighter.  So, the bracket go all cut up, and I started welding again…

So now, this tube bolts to the gearbox.

So maybe tomorrow night needs to be dedicated to lights, instead of car.  I feel Diversions, part 5 coming on.

Anyway, the gearbox mount is all done, all painted up and fitted!
