So had couple hours free and rebuilt the diff with the new parts! When building the diff mounts, I wasnít expecting on putting a flywheel for reverse, so I had clearance issues!! Nothing the grinder couldnít sort! Will put a shaped plate over it another day!! Will need a small starter too!! Maybe one off a big ktm or another big single!!

Everything lines up well tho will do more body work welding tomor, hopefully!! If I do, I plan to get the bulkhead finished and maybe the scuttle and A panels on there .

Whiteboards are so handy!! You can see a mini bike makin for my mate on there too!! Just out of an old lawnmower!!



You can see that pic is old, itís got my Ď88 in there! Sold that a while back!!!



All the cage measurements and shaft lengths etc are on there, as i tend to forget! Even when theyíre on there I forget to look and get it wrong haha

Not much done today.....welded up closing plates for where the cage comes thru, needs a bit of cleaning up but seam sealer and painting will make it look a load better. Made some plates for strengthening, like the original crossmember support, with a dimpled hole. And finished the patch at bottom of bulk head.





Really grapesed off with myself....driveshafts are too long! error on my part, theyíre both 35mm too long, so as theyíre the same, Iíve miss-judged something!! The whiteboard only helps when youíve measured right to start with!! Iíll cut and re-do them one eve this week! Not the end of the world! Another thing Iíve found, now that the shafts are welded, not 2 halves, itís a struggle to get them in!! Have to disassemble a lot of stuff to get them in! Oh well, hopefully they wonít be coming out much!! I painted them too but thereís loads of sharp bits trying to get them in, so that was a waste of time!!

Can see why no one has tried this conversion haha!

The magnum scuttle panel is pineapple too!! Really really bad fit!! Iíve tacked it in place, and will have to grind it to shape for the screen! Will get front subframe back in, doors on and try mock everything up properly for gaps before welding anything properly!!

Thanks for looking!

Dave
