OK so small update, this time making the belly pan for the SuperPower Bantam.
First of a big thanks to Smiths for the great help with providing the material - no better place to get pretty much any metal you could ever want! Sheet, tube, plate, bar, they can cater for anything you need.
With the chassis turned upside down, the fun begins, tricky to make this as we wanted it in one piece and as the chassis tapers towards the front makes bending it a joy. We don't use and rollers in our workshop due to space so did it all by hand like the old days!
Next photo - a shiny sheet of aluminium - first job get a rough size to cut sheet down to a manageable size.
Next photo - the belly pan is done. In the end we didn't like this one, we are perfectionists and we were not happy, so we started to make another one.
2nd version of the belly pan, much happier with this design, both lighter and fits easier and faster for between rounds work on the car. Oil is changed every run and oil filter inspected and cleaned every run. so easy access is vital.
Also bead rolled the front side panels too, as previous owner didn't do them for some reason.
View from above, really pleased with this, typically it wont be seen much!
To finish will be lightly polished then anodised. (black of course)
Next up - finally now the belly pan is completed we will be painting the chassis! Can't wait because then I can start to fit the car up at last.
