I'll add angle bar all around later on to make it look a bit nicer

I want to protect brake and fuel line, so I have used a plastic hose to do that.

BTW. does anybody know why there is a attachment from the frame to the chassis missing in the middle? Is this deliberate, for some reason unknown to me, or just a case of not being bothered to weld it on?

That's all for now. Little by little and I'm one step closer to having a moon buggy!




Next job will be handbrake lever installation and finishing the box behind the seats- I still need to add the side panels to it.

Cheers,D.

Deni - Lots of solid progress there.

I know Sammio and Miglia are only 'cousins' but there were some welding mistakes on my original framework.

So, feel free to adjust as you think is best.

Lookin' good.



Cheers, Paul.

Thanks Paul. Yeah, the frame was not really up to standard when it arrived, so I guess any improvement to it is beneficial. I think I'll just add the missing attachment points.

Cheers,D.

Hi,

Happy New Year to everyone!

Here are some photos to show progress I made lately. I could work on and off on the car, so not loads done but I'm another step closer.
First, after delaying it for a long time, I decided to make dollies to be able to move the car easier within the garage, mainly to be able to approach both sides of the car due to the lack of space.
Great little things, I wish I made them earlier

I've started to fabricate interior panels. I've decided to use anodised aluminium in matt silver colour, so it should look good and not too shiny.

I also bought some cleco pins for this job and they are a great help.

I also bought a bead roller to make flanges on joining panels. The panels are attached/rivetted to each other, so they will be flush fitted. Those panels that will be removable are bolted together.
For those I have used aluminium rivnuts and bolts.

I might add some beads onto the panels, but I'm not sure about that yet.

Using cleco pins makes it possible to finish the job on the bench.

I will install these panels permanently after I've bonded the body onto the subframe, so I have better access to bond and fibreglass the body to the frame where needed.

I will also install the back compartment after bonding the body and I have already fabricated those panels too.

I have also used thermal/silencing aluminium matting on the bulkhead, prop shaft and the gearbox cover. This also serves as a separation between steel and aluminium.













Last but not least!

I will soon start work on re-routing the exhaust. I decided to go for Cherry Bomb - can't wait to hear the sound of it!




That's it for now.

Cheers, D.

Hi Tim,

Thanks, I'm slowly chipping away at it. It's going slow but I'm another step further.

It seems that I'm the only Miglia builder posting the updates regularly (not very often but regularly)...it would be nice to see more people posting their updates, if anybody else is building a Miglia that is.

How is your build going? I hope well.

Cheers, D.

Thanks Deni, life has gotten in the way a bit, but more reason i dont post here is it is so complecated to post pictures. I am working on body and doors at present, (doors dont fit, so ive had to do some drastic cuts, and have not reskinned the doors yet) and once i glue the body on i will finish the doors. I have new seats to go in, but wont put them in until i have finished with fibreglass and sanding.

The windscreen is more of a joke than the doors regarding fit, so i will get some of those glass ones on hinges. Then seatbelts and its done.

My engineer has done several inspections and will come back when it is finished. Not when I think its finished but an engineers version of finished!

I've even fillled, sanded and painted teh rear of the car with rattlecans to motivate me, and i will do that to the whole car prior to inspection and rego, then get proper paint when its on the road.
been at this since 2013 so will be good to get it done.

T
