front bulkhead nearing completion. I made it out of 16g, as opposed to 18g. a bit more strength. Once I've finished welding it up, Ill start on the floors.

front bulkheads finished for now. Once the floors are in Ill finish the bottom part to tie it together, and finish the front box section to support the subframe.

Hi Andy

Enjoying following this thread. I hope you do not mind, but some of the photos came out on their side, so have modified them to allow normal viewing.

Ah, thanks for that. It was starting to irritate me.

Floors today, or at least one of them. Like the bulkhead, Im making them out of 16g steel. a lot stiffer, and ultimately safer. decided to lower them slightly, particularly at the rear, where the seat will be. I have the seats, so when I do the rears, Ill make a profile so I can get the seat as low as is practical. Im also seam welding everything. I don't really like spot welds, yes, its a lot more work, but it makes a far better job.

one side done. once the other side is done, I can attack the rear bulkhead. A lot of work on this section, Ill fabricate a new cross brace which ties the two new floors together and goes over the centre tunnel. Although not perforated, the rust has started to attack the steel. So, a new one makes sense. Then when the rear bulkhead is removed, I can start making the roll cage.

well, both floors are in. a bit more fettling to do, but they're about there. next job is to make a new panel that goes across the car and ties the floors to the bulkhead.

Great photos of an epic build progressing at pace.   

I just looked up 16g and 18g in mm and was surprised it was 1.5 and 1.2.  20g is 0.9mm and 22g 0.75mm.

1.5mm is mighty stuff.  How are you forming those beads?  I saw a ball hammer in a photo.  That and a former under or a bead roller or...?

Hi David, yes I'm using a bead roller. unless originality is required, in which case ill use factory panels, I always use 16g for floors. There isn't much difference in weight over 18g, but the panel is much stiffer and the weld stronger.
