Bodyshell spit/cradle type device...
« on: September 04, 2009, 09:21:17 PM »
Well, attention has turned to the shell and with the aid of some guy who knows more about fiberglass then i know about everything combined, i started trying to get it back on the chassis.

To avoid mangling the shell any more, we decided to put it on a spit type thing, so it can be held up in the air and can be turned up side down or sideways.

So, here it is, the A frames and brackets, minus the pivots at the moment (doing them tomorrow). Made out of £10s woth of junk from the scrap metal yard, and a stick welder.
