Ultra weak update. I started on the mid section of the tunnel today. Bent it around a piece of thick walled pipe. In the weekend I’ll take it to a mates workshop to use their guillotine and bender for the flanges and sides. The sides are slightly tapered/bulged, after I get the mid section the rear section will be much easier to make. Main challenge is the firewall box join to the tunnel.

Dad put together an rather good case of ingenuity to jig up the MK2 Escort rear axle for the 4 link brackets. Two car ramps, a notched piece of wood, a bunch of clamps and a piece of flat iron. Level, plum, align, straight, nice one dad.
