we have brought more hammers across to the garage including a light ball peen hammer so that is sorted. Hopefully you will see in the next video ;) and thank you for the hacksaw advice as you will also see that in the next video ;D

As you asked about hammers, I still don't have all I ould like, but I have used all of these so far in the current build.
Next buy is a planishing hammer.

Update. It rolls....
We were taking pictures so I can plan the rest of the build but this is what I have got so far. I have a few options when it comes to seats but it will either be the go kart seat you can see in this picture or a low, thin but functional, metal seat bolted to the chassis. It also looks like my double external brake plan might just work, the axle is just the right size. The bottom end of the steering is built and the wheel is fitted to the hub, just need to join them. The steering wheel is an OMP steering wheel which was a Christmas present (thanks dad) which should look cool with the modern feel. I now need to plan the bodywork/frame for the rest of the build. I also still need to work out the electric drivetrain.

As always, any questions just ask

Marek

Looking better each time, it's going to be so worth all that work in the end :-)

That's a great succinct video Marek. Don't forget the crush tubes where the bolts for your bracket pass through the cross member. :)

thank you. not sure if we will need them due to spreading the load on both sides of the tube.

Excellent short and to the point...also excellent music choice :-)

Re the melting milk bottles, how blow lamp, oven and did you need to compress the melted goo,
or does it get dense enough just by the melting? Also how many milk bottles?

Ideally wherever bolts pass through tubes there should be crush tubes, especially where the wall thickness is as thin as "we" use. They don't have to be welded in place, one side hole just big enough to let the tube (or "top hat") in, and the tube butts against the inside wall on the other face. It allows for the proper clamping force to be applied. FWIW I get growled at by my son whenever I don't use them and a torque wrench on every bolt.
