Just an update for everyone. This morning i finished the transmission tunnel, i have done the tunnel before the rear section as i currently dont have the money to buy the chassis plates, hopefully i will do soon.

I took the chassis off of the build table and out of the garage with help from my dad, just so i could give the garage a quick tidy and rearrange stuff, and decide what bits i need to take the the scrap yard on monday as i got a lot of extra stuff with my donor parts.

So now that that is done i will be starting to clean up all of my donor parts and give them a nice lick of paint until i get the funds to buy the chassis plates and suspension brackets.

Looking good tatey.

The chassis plates for the rear are dead simple. Even the ones that are used as the top suspension mounts. In fact, those ones are dead easy, just a flat piece of 3mm with some careful laying out and drilling.

The hardest bit was making the rear panel round bars. I don't know any plumbers, but if you did it might make it a bit easier to get the bars bent.

I resorted to cutting loads of 1mm slits then bending to suit. A few beads of weld along the inside once bent, and they will be hidden by the rear panel anyway

How long did it take to make the chassis plates? Also what did you use to make them? Finally what dimensions was the steel plate you used and how much did it cost you?

The cheaper i can make them then the sooner i can do it

Also what components have people painted and what paints have you's used? The things i can see being painted are:

Drum Brakes
Brake Calipers
Engine
Gearbox
Diff
Driveshafts
