Default Ahhhhhh HELP

Hello

Can someone help me before I go mad. I have been attempting to build the MT75 transmission tunnel, but find the instructions a bit misleading.

Ok well I have got as far as MT10 and 12 and pitched them on the top rail as suggested, only to read later on that they should be positioned directly above MT4 and 5 respectively. This is impossible if you position them as suggested in the diagram.

Cant go any further now so any help much appreciated.

Leigh

Hi, did mine ages ago all i can remember is that the top rails go directly above/inline with the bottom rails. so all the tunnel sides remain at 90 degrees to the floor
I worked from the back forwards the rear section is parallel then tapers out.
there may be an error on the hoop bits as i recall cutting another cross tube but it might have been just me.there may be pics in my albums I cant remember.
put up some pics so we can see the problem

Excellent thanks Ray.

Yes there are a few errors. One being the hoop, another it shows some pieces in blue it says are unchanged but they are. And now this bit contradicts itself.

Might be me having one of those days!

Right well, what a day. Still I made some progress. All but finished my transmission tunnel and even done the part I was dreading, SB5 and 6!

Big rush on to finish chassis so I can get my Sierra in the garage and out of sight! Already had 3 'visitors' want to but it for scrap! Steptoe and son!
