Day 13 - Rear end and demisting

Rear end

I hadn't fitted the rear end hinge because it makes the car a little long. However, I decided to do it as a precursor to wiring the lights.

The first thing to fit was the hinge attachment to the chassis. Drilling 8 holes enabled it to fit the chassis.

Next, the lower part of the rear section was bolted to the top part, prior to Sikaflexing the two together.

I drew around the base of the windscreen to give me the location for the demisting vents I'd bought earlier from Car Builder Solutions.

I then bonded a cut up demister plenum to the underside.

And then 'filled the gaps' with old bits of glue tubes (they're close to the same size). I'll paint it black later on to hide them.

And from the other side (again). When it's painted, you won't see any of the bonding glue!

I may have to move the inlet valve, as it's immediately above one of the vents - it all depends on how powerful the fan is.

Packing up

With the help of a neighbour of mine (Mark), I was able to take a picture of the rear end roughly in place.
