The latter will, no doubt, adopt brazing, welding, and steel construction where I have used wood, although the latter is amply strong for the purpose, and has the advantage that it does not bend.
Low Centre of Gravity
With the construction at this stage, do not make the mistake of starting the engine, since further
bracing of the chassis is necessary to secure rigidity. Notice that the forward end of the chassis is covered underneath to provide pedal room and to keep the centre of gravity low.
Give all of the wooden parts a coat of lead colour or dead black and do not forget to smear all bolts with oil.
