    Yeah Glyn, I like to keep a list of "Shed" work but sometimes you need to do some outside stuff to progress the inside stuff (if that makes sense) and that's the frustrating bit. But I'll keep chipping away at it!

    Sorry Chaps, I must admit I’ve been a bit slack lately, what with the arrival of my grandson and all that! But I’m back at it now; I have made and fitted the rest of the boxing plates for the “Z” and welded them in.

    I also boxed the front (horns) of the chassis, like so…



















    I’ve left the spring mount in place for now, it may stay or go depending on how the engine fitting goes, but I thought It’s easier to take it away later rather than try to add it if I need it.









    All I need to do now is clean it up, then I can drop her off the stands and position the axle under the “Z”. Then it’s just making the 4 bar and coilover mounts for the chassis, sounds so simple when your typing it!!

    Cheers. Tim W.

    Thanks for your kind words Mike and Pete, I can’t take any credit for the grandson but I will when he gets his first Rod!!!

    I managed to get the welds all cleaned up and the “Z”ed section coated with some rust inhibitor.















    Then I got her off the stands







    And I popped the axle under to see how she looked.







    Hopefully I will get some dry time tonight to get the axle positioned properly, I’m thinking of pushing the axle a bit further forward than standard so I may need to put a wing on to see if it looks crap or not!

    Cheers. Tim W.

    If all goes to plan Mike, there should be about 4 1/2" of air under the grill !! But we all know what plans are like!

    Yeah Allan, I don't think I use enough gas in a year to to spend money on the big bottle rental, from what I read on here. Also I have to keep carrying it all out and round the drive to use it so a big bottle might be a bit af a hinderance.

    No progress last night as it rained - Working tonight so none tonight!

    Cheers. Tim W.

    Sounds like I need to double check a few bits when I can get outside Mike, I think I have 5" under the chassis at the bottom of the "A" post. Won't get home until 10:20 tonight so it will have to wait! Yeah I know I'm a light weight !!

    Hi Tim,

    If it's any help to you, i've just set my Pop up with 5" under the grille, the chassis is 5" off the ground all round as well.. Tyres are tucked up into the arches front and back..

    Got some big square edge 'speed bumps' in our road and driveway/pavement is on a slope so have built it so that I can drive it further than to the end of the drive and back!!!

    Cheers,
    Nick.

    That's good to know Nick, sounds like I'm on the right lines then. We have raised platforms in the road just down from me. Any chance of a picture of how it sits for reference.

    I knew I should have taken some pics when I wheeled it out the garage last weekend! You might be able to judge from the shots on the tail end of my build thread. Unfortunately, it's back in the garage with all the other detritus and I can't push it out by myself.. If you can hang on, I'll borrow some help at the weekend..

    Much appreciated mate but don't spoil your week-end over it, I'm not exactly flying along at the minute.
