|Is This Thing on Auto
Began making the number
plate for the front. I decided to make it out of brass. First I
printed the font in the correct size on paper, then glued it to a thin
piece of brass. I then cut the outline out on my band saw. The inner
void was drilled and cut out. Once the the cutting was done, it was
filed to round the edges. Here is the process from left to right.
Here is the backing plate with mounting
brackets along with all four numbers.
I then silver soldered the numbers to the
plate. Still needs to be painted, but that can wait till later.
Here is the front pilot, number plate and other
items. The only thing left to do is to paint. I'll leave other details
like the brake lines, coupler linkage, etc. until later.
