This is a great suggestion, thanks. I was at Harbor Freight today looking for tools and trying to learn a little. Be at Home Depot, maybe, tomorrow. I'm just at the point of buying hardware having scoped-out places to insert bolts and a general design plan. I'm possibly gonna use sheet aluminum, even though it costs a bit more (not sure how much more yet, waiting for a quote).

BTW, I posted photos of my "box cavity" prototype in post #11 (above).

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
