I can't remember to be honest, I would guess at somewhere between 12 and 15. They were bloody strong, I tested this by putting it in place and jumping on it as hard as possible (I'm 15 stone) with no deformation at all but surprisingly light weight.

15 stone, Bantam weight that is :-)
I also had concerns about wood and have banished it from my build, Ali and fibreglass sheet for me, the floors are 3mm Ali and very strong.

The current floors are 2mm sheet (or 3mm on request) so are between 14 and 11 Gauge (Talking about Gauges, I've always had a fondness for 16 gauge which is near enough 1/16" or 1.6mm. So easy to remember :biggrin)

Gary - My eyesight seems to be playing up a bit at the moment, what is the second word?



Also have you found anywhere that could make up this kind of car badge?

I picked this 1500 badge up along the way as one option for my car.



But I'd love to be able to get something else written in this style.



Cheers, Paul.

Hello everybody peeps. I have emailed a chap who has many videos on you tube on home casting. He is exceptionally good at casting everything from toy cars to complete engine parts in Aluminium, in his shed. I have emailed to ask how much he would charge to cast some 50's /60's sports car font letters,( Sammio Spyder par example ). If you would like to see what he does type "home casting" into youtube and look for his name "myfordboy".
It is exceptional viewing, just be careful it is very addictive and will get you in trouble with the better arhhff as you will stop all other activities .( except building your car of course).Bon Chance.

Nice ar*e, shame about the boat race -



I do like the cockpit and back end on this Alfa. Are they suicide doors? Anyone know if it's just a single, central seat or did it pioneer the McLaren F1 seating layout with three abreast?

Look to the right of the cockpit. It looks like the engine cowl of a Dornier.
