Tonight I made the second wheel tub vertical piece, and also I made the rounded shape of the tub for the first one pretty pleased! The brazing is pretty harsh but I am a complete brazing noob so... lol Hope you like the little progress!

I will make an inside wall of the same metal under the rear side windows, so that is why I made the outer piece with all those tabs ready to braze to that future piece. Like in the reference picture below. Hope you like the little progress!

On 1:1 most of the center section of that panel piece is cut out and filled with what I guess is.. automotive cardboard lol might just do that and cutout the center to save some weight when the pieces are done. Still need to work the chassis a bit so the tub fit better but I'm getting there! Sorry for the bunch of pics with little progress but that's how I do it, the turtle will get there!

I am just back from the garage doing the other side tub, and cutting the side plate to shape. Car starting to look more put together, it is nice to see the chassis have some inside space with the sides, should look neat with the cage attached to it. Did a more solid brazing job on this side, but the sheetmetal warped quite a bit, had to force it to shape a bit. Oh and the round is slightly not symmetrical between the two tubs.. but so many things are crooked on this car, still happy with it so this is not going to bother me! On to a few pics:

And I am pretty happy with the new future shocks location, they will be muuuch further apart and this will help the handling a lot, I probably won't even need a sway bar. The next pic you can see the distance difference between the shocks turrets I just made and the current shocks location. Previously with the shocks so inwards, the suspension was very soft for body roll, and not so soft for bumps. It should also help slide instead of wanting to roll over!

And a bit of oven at 60c to get it to cure fully faster. It's been a week and I can still mark the paint with my fingernails!
