Got a bit side tracked today, was going to fit the sun roof,decided to have a go and fit the radiator grill. Not sure if I should be calling it that as I wont be fitting a radiator at the front of the Rat.Unfortunately didn’t take many photos, wasn’t a big problem.This part of the build was a small amount of work but turned out to be the turning point of the build as the front end seems finally to look like a Rat.Just come in from the garden, may have had a few beers so there may be a few typos etc.Will try and give you all an update on the work today.

The bonnet was attacked with my disc cutter, removing the grill and surround.

Again I didn’t take any photos of the cutting. The grill was mounted onto the axle via a couple of machined pieces of bar, threaded 8mm,and welded to the axle.

Well that’s it short and sweet, below the finished grill mounted.
