Wagon Progress

Thanks crash!






Picked up the console from the powder coater, the outside was done in satin black and will be covered in upholstery, the inside parts were done in wrinkle finish, this will be their "covering"


































Tonight we worked on some stainless for our seat belt escutcheons..













Some measurements and geometry from high school should get us the correct size from the onset...




















Using the mag brake and a 3/4 tube to bend our radius...



























Tacked together using the TIG

























Got running late and missed some pictures, but here's the part welded up and polished..












.
 
More progress, Mike installed the driver seat so we could mock up the lap belt for locating the lower escutcheon.





Then we contemplated vertical or parallel....





Remaining escutcheons were welded up...





Ideally the inner opening of the ring should rest on the midline of the sleeve. This provides for a good fusion weld and starts the formation of the radius we're looking for around the inside opening. Here's the various stages of welding the escutcheons:


Mike got the remaining openings cut in the arm rest and kick panels for the escutcheons...







Test fit...





…..and JB got started on the speaker trim rings for us...





The recess on the rear is for the stainless mesh...
