I'm glad you like it. I'm no Arlo, but I can make a tool when I need it. Here is die #2. One more to go to finish up the frame for the battery box hatch

No, but that's why I am waiting for it before finalizing routing and holes in the frame

Yeah it's overkill but I only want to run it once. If I ever upgrade the motor and batteries it will be ready.

I doubt it will resemble a series harness in any shape.

Hopefully my rear end cappings are in there somewhere. :-)

How much was it for that weight?

Bottom left - to the right if Eds ladders. Price will vary based on how hard it is to strip. Worst case under 1k he said.

Do they handle Chen dip and prep? The one here I have to do it all before they are willing to touch it.

There's prolly a bunch of stuff you forgot. It always happens. Don't worry tho, I just got another order of zinc sulphate so you can make up some groovy home brew plating electrolyte.

Yes they do the stripping in acid baths - I did minimal prep. It's a small place and appears they will pay attention to detail - they said to allow a few weeks in case the paint is hard to come off.

Bill, I am counting on doing another run when you do your bumper and sliders. I didn't finish the rear battery hatch surround so that will be needed for sure, I am pretty sure I need another tub stiffener done (need to source one first) and also make some seat belt brackets in the tub. I am sure there will be others.

Oh, and I'd love to get Ron's axle housings and see how dipping them turns out, if just for the education.

On the home brew plating, I'd like to try that on small parts. I also need to decide what to do with the alto-luce pins/plates. I disassembled one for the last run and the piece came out looking like shit. If they do better here, maybe I'll disable the other and try again, otherwise I'll remove the pins, galvy the plates, and switch to the bolt on pins. I'd try the home brew on these but Ed says the home brew will look different, and I'd prefer them to look like the cap pings and the rest of the galvy bits around it.

Unbelievable price at $700! They did say they left off some charges that I would have normally incurred due to it being a non-commercial project!

I likely won't unload until Sunday but I'll take a shot with it all laid out once I do. Here is a teaser though.

That's so hot. I am really curious to see how your bulkhead turned out.

Exactly!

I thought I was going to get a lot done while the parts were out for galvy. Got nothing done. Still hoping for a spring push though.
