Lower spider plate

Went to the water jet cutter today and picked up the lower spider plate.

This will be welded to the existing OX-5 spider plate to accomodate the Hisso. The rings are doublers to strengthen the openings. I had the plate made oversize. Once the radiator is in place, it will be trimmed to size. More about this later. I was just excited to pick up the plate.

Till then
