Yes, I have a hole deburring tool. The problem is the interior ends of the tubes, with sharp burrs from having been cut. That's why I said that had I planned ahead, I could have removed those burrs before welding the tubes together.

Hi !
The idea was to not only drill a hole, but drill a hole big enough so I can weld in a lead-through pipe and pull the cable through.
Will countersink each side of the lead-through pipes, so the risk of the cables being damaged by sharp edges is minimal.
Welding a pipe "crush tube" should not affect the strength of the pipe, you do the same when welding bushings for seat belts.

Next thought!
And for the reinforcement 214 R / L, where I thought to use 1 "* 1" tube.
Should be easier to mount engine bay cover behind the seats, since 213 L / R are also square-edged pipes, then you get well-attached points.

My misunderstanding, thought you meant the insides of the holes. Reverse deburring tools aren't all that well known, hence the suggestion.

Hello!
Has not happened much, has finally got some nice weather here in Sweden. So it will be more house and garden work than car construction.
I am looking at how I can rebuild the brakes to accommodate 300 mm large discs, on the front brakes. On the rear it will probably be standard 276mm NB sport brakes, yes we will see what happens there.
eed bigger brakes due to my engine choice, according to Swedish rules.
And then we have the hockey World Cup, a lot to see and do !! 8-)

That's always the conflict. When the weather is bad, I can't drive the car, but it's good for garage time ("Sorry, honey, I'd love to be outside right now doing chores, but this rain/heat/cold/etc just won't allow it").

When the weather is good, there are always home and yard tasks. Even when there are no tasks and I go for a drive, when I get home, I often hear something about how it would have been nice had I stayed around to help with something. Unfortunately, it diminishes the enjoyment a little, knowing that it could be costing me in some way. Add this above to the pile of reasons/excuses why I haven't been driving the car much.
