As the consensus on here seems to be that that is not the case, I'll follow your lead.

I look forward to seeing your build progress.
My garage is not the largest but hay, I've seen treads of people building it outside and in sheds so I'm sure I'll manage in my modest garage. I was going to leave it loose on the table but as I was tacking it the front started lifting so I went with, if it started lifting when tacking it would be a bannah when I start fully welding it. I keep checking for sag on my build table and the measurements of my chassis to try and catch any problems but like you say the true test will be once I unscrew it from the table.
God loves a trier

Actual cost so far = Have chosen to stop counting incase I incriminate myself -
Cost ive told the wife = A hell of a lot less than I have spent. -
