Fabrication - Frame rails: Part I

During the Easter I toiled away with the drivers side frame rails.

Material used is 60x40x3 mm RHS profile and it should be more than adequate for this task... might be even a slight overkill!
I managed to spend two days building one lousy frame rail, but I hope that the next one will happen a bit faster.

At least now I have a sample frame rail, as now I just had to guess/measure what should be the correct angles and lengths.

Onwards to the pictures... First the Mark I and also what I had to cut away during this stage:
