Today we finished the second main chassis rail.
Went really well and was good working in pleasant conditions, a bit rain once in a while but nice temperature.

After finishing the main rail we started the neck section.
The two side pieces first.

Tacked up to keep them nicely symmetric and then fully welded on both sides to keep them aligned. If one side should pull in a bit the other would follow.
The heat and the smallest of gaps can distort a perfectly aligned angle.

Massive brace under the neck will hold everything together.
