Made a start on the spine for one upright.

Drill 3 holes on center  line  and counter sunk on side opposite spine

Drill and tap 3 corresponding on the spine .

Screw 3 brass rods through upright and into spine.
Peen rod into counter sunk
The theory is it will all hold in place while I silver solder joint .

Buggar me it worked and it still fits the engine .

Still need to clean it up and shape/file the outside of the spine .

Cheers
