    Bends easy part considering what's ahead mate, hardest parts getting the holes right pockets and spur cut out will have a large tolerance considering
    lol dean i'm used to your yaksha spelling now mate ,

    side bends should be the easy ones dean, its the front kick up bend that has to be spot on , if it aint right the front diff wont go in there ,
    pockets and spur cutout are easy as well , pockets will be shaped to whatever I think I can get away with though,

    so today I covered the new alloy in that paper vinyl application stuff to try and keep scratches to a minimum,
    then lined the stock chassis up and bolted it to the new alloy,
    i'm using the stock chassis as a template and drill guide so the holes are right,
    drilled some of the front holes that I know are in the right position, then will move the stock chassis 35mm back and line up, bolt down and drill the rear holes that I know are in the right position,
    then bolt some parts to the new chassis and work out if owt needs moving or repositioning, like battery box and centre shaft carrier and that,
    then drill rest of the holes , countersink the ones that need it, then cut to shape and do the bends ,
    simples
    couple of pics below, and as always, thanks for lookin

    today I moved the stock chassis 35mm rearwards and lined up then bolted to the alloy for the new chassis,
    drilled the rear holes that I know are in the right place,
    also drilled some extra holes to mark out the corners/ ends of some of the slots needed as well,
    then test fitted a few parts I didn't bolt anything down yet, just placed on the chassis using the locating holes to give you all an idea of whats what,
    next I need to elongate some of the slots then I can test fit some parts proper and work out if the battery box and centre shaft carrier need moving a little bit,
    may not need to move em but better to make sure before I drill the mounting holes for those parts,
    went well , and looks like I drilled it right ,
    some pics below to give a better idea,
    and as always, thanks for lookin

    oh, and remember, go pro lense makes things look curved, it aint curved

    Nice one Paul it's coming along nicely now mate, not to sure about the fag holder though. But on another note cooling fan, would this chassis mean easier fan mounting.

    yeh its makin sense a bit more now dean, so from now on, the more I do the more it should look like a chassis ,
    lol, heat sink is just right for holding tab ends mate ,
    cooling fan should be easier dean, can fasten to the cage as well with the hammer cos this is the only cage that will be fitted to this one

    quick update, no pics though
    chassis has been on hold for a week or so cos I didn't have any metal cutting blades or decent countersink bits, I was skint as usual ,
    so just ordered some countersink bits and some blades ,
    so chassis will continue as soon as they arrive,
    only thing I did do was re mask the new chassis alloy with some white vinyl I had kickin about , so less scratches and easier to mark out for cuts and stuff now,
    will update more very soon,
    as always, thanks for lookin ,

    today I drilled a few more holes in the new chassis , had to check em loads to make sure they were bob on cos there the front diff mount holes,
    had to take into account the bend for the front kick up as well cos the bend is the last job that will have to be done, got em right though ,
    then had a mini mock up, bolted the front diff in using the rear holes only, then loosely fitted engine, batt box and centre shaft carrier,
    I put the engine as far towards the centre as I could in the mounting, I have clearance for the shaft so alls good,
    but I will have around 6mm more room when everything is bolted up,
    happy chappy cos I thought I might have to relocate the coils, but seems as though things will fit as is,
    not got much done cos i'm waiting for some metal cutting blades and counter sink bits to turn up,
    should have been here already but they aint come,
    also waiting for some glue for another job i'm doing for someone here, need to bond/seal three parts up on that job,
    that last bits just a message to this person so they know I aint forgot the job ,
    few pics below, and as always, thanks for lookin

    oh, and almost forgot, the front chassis brace is defo gonna have to be a one off , not much room for it but will make one from scratch
