Cab Sandwich Update...

From the back - the plate placement.  The rivets are soldered to the front plate and will be riveted in the back plate. I still need to cut tubing to fit the rivets.  They will hold the space steady between the front and the back.

The front of the cab sandwich.  Note the pins are this point are about 3 times they length they need to be and the bezel needs to be cleaned up so it will fit the cab a little better.  When I started it fit - but it doesn't right now....grrrrrr.

Here we are all fit together in the stage where I consider what needs to be polished first - what the finish might be (bright/oxidized/ whatever).  I also have dangles that I want to hang on the loose soldered jump ring that is hanging from one of the bottom rungs.  Hmmmmm - what to put there?  I've got to figure out what goes with that heart.  Hearts and flowers? Lost love?  Circus love (I mean it is a triadic color scheme and almost straight red, yellow, blue), so what to do - yikes.
