Here's a little update on R2.
With the integrated cage installed we can work on fitting the roof for the final time. With edges rolled at the door tops, low spots are slowly worked out with a dollie and spoon. This is as close as we can get without the windscreen in place. Next step, mock up the windscreen and gap the perimeter.
Windscreen dropped into place. Checking to ensure that we haven’t lost the ¼” perimeter gap during the transition from the wire frame buck stage to the current stage of panel assembly.
Primary and secondary door seals installed. The secondary lower seal will be part of the door. It’s crucial for these seals to sit correctly in all the right areas, otherwise you’ll get air noise and water entering the cab. Also, this is what makes or breaks that 'factory' look.
Thanks for checking out the build.
A journey in design and fabrication begins with a vision, a single pen stroke ... and in some cases the blow of a hammer.
