« Part 113: Sprint race car Frame Part 114 of Toy Construction series Part 115: Sprint race car gas tank, gluing it together. »

Needed to start with the things that will hold the two frames together.
This is being made with what wood is left over from other project.
Cherry walnut and oak dowels.

I haven’t read one bit of the instructions just using the pictures to get er done.
When I get near finished and things aren’t going right I’ll read the fine print and see what I did wrong. lol
The Gatto plans have a lot a reading instructions but these plans came with a full sheet with all the part pictured so you can copy, print and then cut them out and glue to your wood can’t get much easier than that.

Sorry but that’s all I got done today.

I should add that all the big parts are dry fit so I will be able to shape and buff everything when the time comes.

Lucky dowel is circular… otherwise you’d finish up with a box-cage rather than a roll-cage.

Keep them there posts a rolling.

It would have been nice and more accurate to do it all with dowels[the frame] but my would be metal brackets will be mostly hid by the fairings and such.

The glue-up of all those dowel frame pieces must have sucked BIG TIME !

I’m thinking you must have more patience than me …
