Adding structure for body mounting.
Some tubes were MIA as glass bodies were slightly different mounting

This thread keeps showing up in the unread posts list but there isn't anything new. Last time this was due to a database error. Maybe this post will shake things loose.

Nice work Jeff.
Are you the welder, and is it oxy, MIG or TIG?

Cheers!

I use a Mig, but this is gas by Joe Stafford.
Very lucky to have resources.

Seaming the two areas together!
There is a little bit of work but in the end it will be strong and secure.

What's the final plan on the joint where aluminum meets fiberglass? How are you going to bond and fasten them together, and how will you keep the two dissimilar materials from cracking at the joint? I hope it all goes well for you.

Doug

Easy, industrial two part epoxy.
When testing it out the bond it is stronger than the alloy itself which will be wrapped on the tubular frame. Testing glass to alloy alone; the alloy fails (tears) before the joint fails.
Itís will be final for sure.
