Clamp city! We leave a couple of the holes accessible to the drills so that we can drill the holes through the brass bits, and through the sixteen gauge steel underneath.
This is the finished cinquellette from a three quarter's view...
And below is what it looks like from the front. All that is left now is to finish file the edges to clean them up, and of course to replace those pop rivets with brass rivets. The plaquart is the same but different...I didn't want to duplicate the front design too much, though I suppose it would have been good design practice to do so.
And to give credit where credit is due, most of the bull dog work here has been done by Mark, under my close supervision. I just fussed about, correcting a line here, fixing something there. He can take credit for all that work. I'll take credit for the design.
