Thanks for the link, i know of this site i had it bookmarked but when i reloaded my computer a couple months ago i lost this link.

i am wondering if these guys have any other panels like rear cross member panels and firewall panel.

Also are you using any measurements with your rebuild. I have some measurements that can help in the rebuild if you like.


I guest when its time for me to do my rebuild i will be calling on you. Oh! by the way great job.

For cross members you have to shop here http://www.wolfparts.com/ , its expensive but you it's the only shop that has old cross members.
I measure before I cut, on other cars and there's a lot of eyeball engineering

Good measurements are alway's welcome, you never know when you need them. Thanks. Paul.

Paul i notice that the europeans only cater for the car from the 50's to 60's nothing from the 70's.

Also paul where did you get that jig for the door column.

Well i guest some people want the earlier cars but use late enders are at a disadvantage in finding good sheet metal.

Ah! hookies have this jig, great but can it work on the 72 cars and how much did you pay for it.

Today I did some more work under the hood. This is one of the holes to fix the gastank, needs some work


This looks a whole lot better.



The channels are welded, so Finlay it was time to take out the climbing frame

Looks better already


After I welded the channels to the body I lifted the body again, now I can stand in it and weld all the seems.



Paul.

This morning bolted the body back on to check the pedal-steer-seat position
First I checked the old with the new pedal position, look good to me 8)


Then fitted the seat and for the first time in a few years I took place behind the wheel ;D


When I place the steering wheel 5cm closer to the seat, the position is spot on. The steering column can be moved 5cm without cutting or welding, how cool is that.


Before I weld the channels, I had to be sure that the trunk still fits. And it fits like a glove.


The gearbox and engine are raised, so the trunk has to be raised as well. After some measurement it seems that the trunk needs to be raised by 12cm.


Paul.
