Glad about the chassis. It looked a bit iffy, but I didn't want to put the boot in. Good luck with the rebuild.

yes the chassis is well shot, plates upon plates, rear is ok, outriggers are knacked too.

there is only one way to go and that's a full galvi chassis, its certainly not going to be cheap as i want it to be mint, so lots and lots of new parts, 

i really looking forward to getting stuck in, but as i work full time its not going to be a quick process, so i shouldn't get to fed up with it.

thanks.

Good start mate, I was lucky as the chassis was already done one mine, its just everything else that is knackered.

 

They are great cars to work on as everything comes apart so easily and parts are easy to source.

How much is a galvi chassis these days? Quite like the ideal of sticking my 90 on one as a winter project.

Out of interest, why did you get a series 3?

 

I've been thinking of Series 2 again recently, but worthwhile ones keep going for 600-700 more than I've got in my car fund.  Wish I'd bought one 5 years ago when I first took up shooting.

 

Any advice or tips from anyone on locating a Series 2 would be appreciated.

I was looking for a 11a or 111 really. This came up at a decent price. And it's a little different than the usual ones you see. And it's a genuine CSW and a Safari roof.

In fairness once you pass the rear cross member change the rest is just a make do for a while. Not the sort of thing you want under a full project with lots of work and costs sitting on it
