In order to get the best results from the foot load cell sensors, I needed to get a better surface where the two parts mate. I managed to do some of the parts on my CNC machine, but these parts were easier to do in my rubbish lathe. I had to make up a holding jig to get them in the reverse jaw chuck. Actually the finish wasn't too bad as long as they were machines at 2500rpm.

The HexEngine back in position. I switched the LEDS to the opposite side so that the operator cans see them if required, it was a bit of a fiddle as it involved rotating the entire PC-104 stack inside the CAN, but worth it I think.
Remounted the WiFi antenna to the outside face of the bulk head, this is so that there are no cables needed on the cab.

I picked up the aluminium tank supports and fitted them, they have gone in no problem and look the part. Having the support posts in place I decided it was time to fit the seat bracket and battery supports.
Decided the battery strap worked better fitted across each battery rather than across them both, I have a second strap I need to chop down and fit.
And finally with the tank and seat fitted.
