Plywood in mind

Wickes still in business here, its where I buy my paint for it. :)

Balsa would be interesting! A balsa frame covered in tissue paper and doped. Its how my brother made model aircraft 50 years ago. :)

Cant get early aircraft out of my head now! :D

Balsa, tissue paper and dope, me too with a Jetex motor on the glider I had. It didn't last long before the trees took it out. :D

Hi :)

For the Bedouin, I'm trying to get some idea of the grill size in the bonnet of a standard late 2CV.

As you can see, the grill at the bottom on the Shed, can allow a lot of air through. I'm looking to just replace the bottom grill with wood, though I need to do something about the number plate angle.

Just to be sure, can anyone give me dimensions of a late 2CV grill please?

Thanks :)

@Roger V : its 50 x 22 cm, of course not really rectangular.

Thanks @Edce

The top part on mine is smaller than that, which suprises me!

So, some more thinking to do!

@Roger V ; I gave you the outer dimensions of the grille itself. The opening in the hood is smaller, I guess two cm.
