cyclekart, making room for the front suspension
I had to carve away some chunks of the body to make way for various protrusions of the front suspension. I used a router, and a bit of chiseling to do this. The other side of the kart is similar, but not done quite as well (the side shown here was the 2nd side I did, I got a bit better with practice.)

Here’s the framerail in position, showing how the various parts of the suspension fit into the holes I’ve cut out.

Here’s the kart with the frame rails (barely) bolted on, with the front axle in place (though it’s just resting there, not bolted on — I haven’t found the right u-bolts for that yet, and also, I think I may want some tie-rods to keep the front axle from moving in undesirable ways.)

It’s coming together, slowly but surely.
