Hi Bob
Theres a lot of old wives tales about JK .(It grows through concrete floors )
In my experience systemic weedkiller will do for it?
Eg roundup or even better the same stuff from Wilko for 1/3 the price.
Wait til its actively growing dont knock it down ,give it a good spraying. youll find that the main growth will die back in a few weeks. If you see(and you probably will) new young growth zap it again (dont chop it up).If you keep zapping it with the WK it eventually sends up the white flag.

Hi all
Thank you very much Phil (talon) for your time and effort to get me started on my build with this incredible chassis donation from forum members, Thanks to all members who contributed.
I have made a start today, got all the base rails fastened in place on the table and made a front frame jig.

David

Let's hope we all have a good year.

How is it that I have only just seen this thread?!?

This sort of charity helps restore some confidence in the decency of man, heres hoping a great roadster springs forth as a result.

I'll be watching the build closely Irondoctor, and yes, photos! Lots and lots of photos!!
