All front chassis is now solid going to start on the rear tomorrow and await for a delivery from rick at Scofield's so I can build the middle and repair all pillars so I'm left with a solid shell that can be media blasted inside and underneath, I'm still not sure how far to go on this option 1 make it solid and run it round ratty for a while or option 2 full on resto prob be option 1 as I had a mint 64 that I was scared of using and with 2 young kids it doesn't matter if they hit it with there bikes etc

Option 1 for now, option 2 later, everyone's a winner!

I braced the outside whilst repairing the inside to make sure nothing moved, have you noticed I've also measured it in a few places to make sure nothing moves when I put it aall back together

I've just got 1 bit of rear chassis repair to do when my bits arrive from rick, I've rattle caned it black for now and you would never know it's been repaired. Well happy :D
