The frame takes shape

Todays progress:

The spacers between the beam panels installed

Side view, front is left

All side panels assembled.
The small sheet on the top was a torque test on the fly.
While the frame has still a lot of twist without the top side,
 the frame becomes very stiff with the panel screwed on .

Today I decided to give the side boxes a curved design too.
Just a rectangular box looks really stupid and doesn't fit visually to the curvature of the frame.
Furthermore it adds weight, air resistance and a sharp edge 12cm/5" above the ground behind the ankles and heels of the pedallers is not what I want. (Ouch)
I don't want to explain this further, a picture is worth a thousand words.
I hope to get the boxes ready this week and that the look it will have, is at least a little surprise.
