Poject Discussion Forum Rules
This is a new section of where you guys can discuss other users cars. There are just a few rules that need to be followed for this forum to stay nice, clean and easy to use:

1. ONE thread per car. Search the forum for an existing thread before starting your own, things stay tidy that way.
2. Try and stay on topic if you can.
3. Thread titles must be in this format: Username's and the car project

I have created this section so it keeps the build diarys clean and allows the builder of the car to keep us updated a bit like a BLOG so please use this section to disscuss the builders cars and we should see a much easier forum to navigate.

Can anyone tell me what is the alloy extrusion size for the windscreen frame? Haven't found any mention of it anywhere.

The alloy extrusion size for the windscreen frame is standard 3/4" alloy "U" channel. 19mm high, 19mm wide and the inside is 12mm. When you build the form for the windscreen, your roller need to have very smooth surface, over wise it will leave the roller surface marks into the softer alloy extrusion. 2nd if possible reinforce your rolled corners of the form with sheet metal. The "U" channel wants to collapse inward on the form and you end up destroying the corner of the form when removing the channel. Davew
