Got around to finally fitting the uj's to the prop and got it fitted. Rear beam stripped painted and fitted, chassis has all been waxoyled now and a few smaller Jobs finished so last pics of the chassis before I get around to popping the body on. (When I get the chance) 😊

Can’t be long now, ready for spring?
Maybe summer with work commitments. Going to get the other half to give me a hand to get the body back on the weekend although she doesn't know that yet πŸ˜‚, how did you get on with attaching the body back to your chassis? i have shims but no shims were apparent when i took the body off πŸ€”

Mine had shims on some of the mounts. I re-shimmed it in the same places then sat the body down gently, put a few bolts in but didn't tighten them and then checked if there were any gaps on the mounts. None of the gaps were big enough to take an additional shim, so I bolted it down.

There’s two holes, one each side, in the body sills that line up with holes in the chassis. So you can use a long screw drivers to guide the body down to the right place.

I put my body straight down then shimmed it to get door and wing alignment etc. Later, after it was all done I shimmed one corner some more as it didn’t look quite right.

Cheers for the info i just had a look and could see the holes you're on about πŸ‘ Hope you're expansion tank placement works and sorts out the heating issues 😊

Well got one headlight stripped, painted and rebuilt. Just need the light units which look to be a 3 month wait at the moment πŸ˜•
