The finishing touches, where the outside body joins the inside cockpit, have been joined together.

Jack has now finished the mold for the lower half of the dashboard.

The mold will be trimmed and we will make the new part and install the dash. The picture on the right is a non original base plate (1/8" thick steel) that will be welded to the chassis for more strength. We will install a 42mm roll bar with a 1/8" wall thickness. The original roll bar is only for looks and would provide no safety for the driver in a roll over. You will see us changing these bars in all the cars that don't already have them.

The other plate is ready to be welded and Mark has fit the new bar into the original opening.

The opening has to be made a little bigger and we will conceal what we change.

As you can see, the top of the bulkhead structure is what we will alter.
