    cheers tom ^^^^
    .
    Right then, up early today as my body shell and front panels were being delivered at 8 am , so the temporary bits had to be removed and ready to go by then !
    .

    .
    Which was kinda handy as it makes it a bit easier to work on the chassis.
    First thing was to bodge in the transition from 80 x 40 to 25 x 50 in the boot area, bit of slicing and dicing, bish bosh.......... good enough !!
    .








    .
    then i decided to have a go at the ladder bars,these were a couple of the bits i re-used from Hooligan when i built the Cannon, but i knew they would need altering for this car, obviously the front mounts i made earlier in this thread.
    The bars needed shortening and re-tapping, i hand a right hand tap for three ends but not a left hand tap for the remaining end, so this end was a cut n shut job !!
    .





    .
    bit of old bolt as a joiner........
    .


    .
    template for axle mounts............
    .

    .
    and new center brace......
    .


    .
    difference between old and new......
    .

    .
    i knew files were good for something!...........
    .

    .
    mocked up with the diagonal link, which still needs to be shortened for this car......
    .



    .
    thats it for today folks.............

    yep, still got to alter those bits, they need re-shaping and re-drilling.
