Well, thanks to a great guy and some handy helpers i have been able to get my alloy rolled for my fuel tank. Arthur down at ABS Air conditioning and sheet metal services in Chipping Norton in Sydneys west lent me his factory and a couple of his workers today. In no time at all we had the alloy cut and folded. below are a couple of photos from the job.
Above you'll see the sheet in the foreground we used for the template we didn't want to stuff up the alloy. i had one shot at it as i couldn't afford any more sheets of alloy. as it was i was using off cuts. Yup! a precision jet powered board made with off cuts and scrape haha.
A bit of a better angle for you to see the tank and board with the curve that will sit the engines once they are fitted.
Below is how i tend to spend allot of my time when someone sees me pulling this thing from my car. Funnily enough just like me everyone can't wait to see it going. I also have to have a shirt made up. saying two things. WHEN? soon. WHERE? i'll get back to you on that.
if you can think of better let me know haha. Oh! if you're wondering that is a turbine in my arms in a plastic bag to prevent ditry and what not's getting in it.
