I needed a break from scraping crud off the hippo engine, so I started to work on the floor. It needs to be made in two sections so it can come out without removing the cage. I started with the rear section by cutting a bunch of 1” strips out of 1/8” material. I’m making the floor framework out of this, then filling the inside with 18g. I made these stiffener ribs out of 18g I’ll drill and tap the floor to bolt this down to. The front section is gonna be a pain in the butt.
