Yes lucky enough I too read plenty of build threads and read advice from other builders so I have slackened the nuts off using a 4ft bar!

Anything else I need to keep off the shell Before it goes?
I have cut the chassis number off and removed the chassis ID plate and cut out the bracket for the handbrake.

The donor has been completely stripped down now have a big pile for the tip and another pile of bits to sell and help fund the build.

Build table has now been built and I have marked out all the bottom rails.

Only recently managed to check the chassis kit out, couple of bits missing nothing major so think I will cut them myself. In fact some may not be used or be different on the talon chassis compared to the book chassis.

What bits are missing as someone who has just about finished putting together the jigsaw, there are a few bits that are different, on another note, did the gearbox mount come with the flat pack as I never got one and I'd appreciate you sending me the dimentions if you could, anyone else who has them would also work

Thanks for that. I assume it's easier to cut it and place it once the front mounts are in.

I wondered what that bit was thanks guys.
If you want me to I will take some close up pictures of it and measure it too.

I'm missing all bits for the front frame, which obviously I do need. I have started marking out the bits on some box section I bought for welding practice. Much head scratching on FF2 and FF3 but think I have it right now!

Also missing are:

SB 3, 4, 5 & 6 I'm guessing these are as per the book

RS 15 again I'm guessing these are the same as in the book

SW 1, 2 & 3 which I assume are different from the book?

TT 6 & 8 not sure if these are used?

Cheers Dean
