Welcome to the forum hope all for well with your build. Would it not have been better to do the mod on the sump before you painted it?
Regards
John

Yeah that would have been the idea but seen as tho my sump is going to be sat around for a little while I'd rather not have it going rusty and thanks for the welcome

Angry Ahhh!

It seems as tho, gettin a peice of 1220x 2440mm bit of wood to your house is probably the hardest part of the build! was going to start the chassis today aswell!!

LOL, we have all done the sit in it before it's even 1/2 way there bit
Those wishbones from Ginge are a work of art, that guy sure can weld. Nice bloke too!
You can't go far wrong with Andy's chassis kit, I built mine using one, it was all spot on.
Best of luck with the build, keep the piccies coming
Enoch
