good luck with the donor, a little tip..... undo the hub nuts on the rear wheels whilst the car is still on 4 wheels.

the only reason i mentioned the rear tub was that you said you intend doing the rear frame next week, so if you go grp tub you won,t need to buy the round tube,
all the best with your build & lets see some up to date photos

cheers

we,d all like to see the photo of the donor but all i see is a little red X
now the fun begins... stripping it & cleaning all the parts

nice one Andy, good luck with the next stage of your build, keep this pace up & you,ll be on the road sooner than me

cheers
andy
