Yesterday afternoon I was able to get a start on the rig that will hold the dashboard in place while fabricating the enclosure for the new dashboard screen. I wanted to create a reusable rig that would allow me to load up different dashboards for fabrication as needed. I had a bunch of 2×2 steel left over from the BatBerry chassis which worked out really well.
First step was reclaiming the steel by sanding off all the rust that had accumulated from it laying on concrete. These are always the nasty parts of fabrication. The ones where you end up with blistered fingers and dust all over you. But you just suck it up and don’t think about how long it’s going to take, just work away at it. Before you know it, it’s over and you can move on 🙂
