Well I've been quietly working away on the Avon for a few weeks now, today I trial fitted the bodywork onto my chassis before I fully weld everything, to be honest I couldn't believe how well it fitted!
Thought I would have a nightmare, the only thing I'm not too happy about is the fitting of the bonnet, but I think I've read other posts with people having the same problem

Chaseis can now be fully welded this week and then off to powder coaters

Anyway here are a few more pics, sorry I can't seem to get anything uploaded onto here

I've added a blog link to my signature and uploading pictures of the build on there, the chassis is now finished, starting to clean up donor parts now prior to fitting

Made a bit more progress today, fitted the rebuilt diff, rear wishbones, routed the brake pipes ready to be terminated and clipped in, and tried a driveshaft which seemed to look correct

Bit more slow progress over Easter, got the engine in so I can position everything around it but it will be coming out again, the exhaust only has about 15 mm clearance from the top chassis rail
