Back end details. Hatch slide runners

Rear cabin hatch runners.
The photo above shows the detailed scrollwork of the slide runners.

Photos below show stages in the production of this steel facsimile of a feature that would originally been made of wood.

Steel angle with the third, sloping side welded along it's length to give the trapezoidal  cross section.

Scroll end constructed from short lengths of heavy tube and bar.

Here is the completed job.
In the foreground the hole cut in the roof is where the cabin stove chimney will exit.
