The bolt-on rear framework is done; next up is the small hoop at the front. Stylistically it’s coming out okay (I think); a line projected along the front hood intersects the front edge of the engine cover. Once the front is tacked-in, some cardboard will be set down to see how it all looks.

The tricky part is fitting the panels around the rear down-tubes. Done over again it might have been better aesthetically to tip the waistline tubes downward toward the back a bit to make it a bit easier to deal with the curved cover, but not a biggy. The paneling will all be removable, which took some thought; now it’s just a matter of pushing on with the fabrication…
