Building the Tray - Part 3

Having outlined the outer dimensions of the tray, it was time to work out the compartments required to store our gear.  Another 40 odd metres of square section later and the tray is beginning to take shape.

The next step is to get a sheet 2400 x 1200 x 3mm folded to fit in the floor under the hitch.  This will join the rear section to the front subframe and provide a little rigidity to the tray.   I will also get two pieces 1200 x 460 x 1.6mm  rolled to half circles with a 400mm radius to form the inner wheel arches.

As it is Christmas and most of the businesses around here are closed till early January, I will have to wait till I can get this done ready for Part 4.

Now to sleep on what I have done and work out the best way to cover the shell.
