Quote from: cstudep on November 14, 2020, 10:09:26 PMThat is a sweet Mini!Any idea what the old bike in the background is? Almost looks like it could be an old Triumph or something.

Quote from: 94touring on December 02, 2020, 06:21:37 AMPlease don't add filler to close the gap on the seams. When I mount wings I will use screws to pull them in towards the inner wing. It's my way of using a 2nd pair of hands to hold them till I throw in some spot welds. When I'm done I weld up the holes where the screws were.Edit: if it's for the drawer project have at it with filler.

It looks like the drawers are inbound of that plane but its sort of hard to tell. That would also give you a vertical face to finish off the "hatch area" under the bonnet from the rest of it. You could probably even use wood, rather than metal so long as it was substantial enough to resist the pull of the wings.
