Nice stat on the PE chassis and our soldering skills looks mighty good. Did you use CCA to tak the parts in place or did you make a jig?

 

The frame is bended other parts just solderd in place

thecross beam whas the last to put in.

I have used toothpics in the holes to line it out side by side and workd well for me.

I stil have a lot to learn about soldering

now only one problem my soldering iron dondt work any more but replament underway

Thanks Mrk - appreciate the information. 

I've done a lot of soldering in my model railroad days and yours look next to perfect. I normally use a Weller - nothing fancy and one with a soldering station for the sponge and replaceable tips. No temp control.

Looking so good
