Got quite a bit done this weekend. Handled the door latches, fuel cell mount, painted all the bare metal parts, mounted both seats and harness. Even vacuumed out the car and tied up the wiring a bit better.

I did realize I need to wait to wrap up the wiring and hoses until after I get the sheet metal put in.
That will allow me to figure out the battery mount, and run my wiring harness and install a cap/door over the fuel cell. I'll order a couple of 20 gauge sheets tomorrow and see if I can get that going in the next couple weeks.

I have started on the sheet metal now. I ran the tub sections a little higher and chose an angular approach as it was easier to get it welded to the body. The car has a good flat area just below the side windows that made it easy to get something welded there. The little pieces around the D bars were fun. I was able to setup my daughter on the plasma cutter and just holler out the size I needed and she was cutting them for me. She went from cant stand close the me while cutting to doing it herself in about an hour.
Its not the prettiest thing, but with no guidance and first try I'm happy with how it looks, and how strong it is. I plan on sealing all the seams and then painting it all once I finish it up.

More sheet metal done. All that's left is to silicone all the seams and paint the whole setup. I picked up a 12x12 access door off Amazon uses a screw driver to open, and I just welded some scrap metal for a handle on it.
