That's just crazy! You should build an Aston Martin next... or a D type...

Thanks Adrian,
Its funny you should say that, I really want to build a D type replica after the Sprite as I have all the running gear for it. I just have to get the Sprite finished first!
Cheers

Color me green with envy at your abilities to fabricate tin to that standard.

Thanks Pete,

There are far more talented sheetmetal guys around than me though. I'm just trying to do my best and learning so much from what I'm doing.
Thanks for your interest in the project, much appreciated.

This past weeks work on the Sprite hasn't involved much fabrication, although I've made up the inner sills. I have decided to do these a little differently to the original design as the outer sill on my car will be alloy. Originally the inner/outer sills formed a rigid box member that runs to the rear bulkhead. The inner being basically flat with the outer a folded section that spot welds to the inner. Since my car will have an alloy outer I didn't want to compromise the strength so I have made a box member that will sit under/behind the alloy outer and still maintain the structural integrity of the car.

I made the inner sill from galvanized sheet of 12 gauge. Plus painted in the inside of the
outer sill with loads of paint and waxoyl. Remember to fit a seat belt anchoring bolt on
the outside of the inner sill. Looks fantastic. .
