    Frustrating day today, had a few work jobs, but they were spread out, which b5ggered the whole day.
    .
    got down the shed at 3 pm, keep hearing the word " selfie" so figured i'd try and do one !
    .


    ha ha
    .
    Creative juices not flowing, so picked a donkey job to do, figured i'd swap out the gearbox for the shorter one, trouble is it wasnt gonna drop out the bottom without disturbing the level frame, but i had a cunning plan .
    .

    .
    i wonder if it will crane out the door?
    .

    .
    While i had the crane out i figured i'd raise the motor a bit ( 40mm )
    .

    .
    Heres a pic for the " purists"
    .

    .
    Blurry shot so no one notices the plastic prop and cage!
    .


    .
    Then started on the various braces that will be fitted around the rear kick up.
    .




    .
    in for tea, back down in a bit !

    bit more done,
    got the first 2 kick up braces cut/shaped and tacked in.
    Nothing on this chassis will be fully welded until the end, then i can put it back on the roll over thingy to weld it.
    These braces not only support the kick up but also strengthen the cage mount.
    .


    .
    Then got called out on an accident recovery, so thats me done for today.

    Really appreciate you jumping in though cuz ya never know?, all comments are welcomed on this thread, now youve broken the ice GET POSTING !!
    Cheers Mike. Probably gonna be posting a build thread on here sometime, my stepgrandson bought a Pop from Jerry Denning, was fitted with a Jag motor, but he`s got his eye on a 302 and T5 I have in my workshop. Currently working on his dads very rusty 65 Mustang so it may be a while. By the way if you are wondering who I am, look in Street Gasser, I built the Survivor. Martin.
