more drivers footbox

Still getting ready for the call to bring the Boss 427 Go-Cart south…

The top of the drivers footbox has an access hole to be able to do some small maintenance in the future. However, the top part of the panel will be covered by the body, so no screws can be used there. I made some small slip-clips with a spacer the same thickness as the footbox aluminum and siliconed them together…

You can see I gave the edge a small bend to enable these to slide on better. Then I riveted them to the access panel…

I ended up only using 2, and it holds quite well. Now you can see how the smaller spacer gives enough room for the access panel to slide over the footbox panel. And here it is all installed with a few screws just along the bottom to hold it in place.

I’ll figure out what to do with those 3 empty, useless screw holes along the top edge. Not sure you’ll see em, but I know they are there.

Finishing up the footbox this afternoon…
