oh and while I am on a roll here delving through my build pics one thing that my iva tester said he would liked a bit better was the lower seat belt mounts I did them as per the book , he said a couple of webs across the tube on each end of the plate would have been better nut he was still happy and passed them.
take loads of pics along the way of unaccesabile areas , I have heaps of them lol they will be needed later on .

hi everyone, so another weekend has arrived, I started by moving the upright as per previous posts.

then added all the diagonals.

I then had the tedious task of removing the diff bolts that hold the PFF on, my word that took for ever with a lot of help from "Harry Hot Spanner"

then set about the rear diff cage

spent a few hours today fully welding the chassis, still have the rear panel supports to sort but need my rear panel to do that effectively, so set about sorting the steering column -

Great to see some more done something to think about now as well is what are you doing re the roll bar? More specifically the rear braces I copied a previous idea and put 2 wishbone brackets on the back edge of the diff mount plates pictures in my build or I can post them if you want to look. Others have taken them down to the rear corners at the bottom of the rear panel
Anyway great work keep going
