In this picture are the top section from the nose to about the cowl, the lower perimeter box for the passenger compartment, and two lower front frame rails, (partially bent).
Main lower frame perimeter is soldered together…
Some bracing added… Still need to clean up the solder joints on them, after I add more pieces…
More pieces added…
I used brass rod inserted and soldered inside the square tube (full length plus mounting points) for these vertical members for additional strength. And I drilled receiver holes into the frame for a positive fit too.
Tack soldered these parts to the top of the frame…
And then soldered them all together. (Top)
(Bottom)
More bracing made and installed…
Still growing…
