Lower Spider Plate

Cut the lower spider plate bottom curve today. I used the bandsaw to get the rough outline and the hand grinder to cut to the line.

Here's the plate cut to size.

The radiator support is a piece of steel strip welded along the lower curve. I used angle brackets to hold everything in place....

... and clamped it all together ...

...and made a few tack welds.

The finish welding will be the next step. Enjoy
