Made a bender over weekend but struggling to fine right way to repair chassis swan neck. Tried to bend half pieces but not really workin. Plan B was to bend U piece and cut down to fit and weld in like 1st pic.. Any thoughts on this method.? ea2a1189ea26c69e218fb0b0b69438ef.jpg0dd32e62a7bfd21f78f78f0877bea5f6.jpg3065b9217e62b6bd50dd16da24045d76.jpg0c241138f781b33b8b320017269959ca.jpg

Bit of an update. Got chassis legs finished eventually and epoxy primed. Went on to make jig to get shell off rollover and back on ground again. Next step is floor which have in now to test fit.. so any advice welcome. cc492070f6f8e168f72b2236f89366b7.jpg1d52d6880d10ecafac1cd3e5a216e5e5.jpg2aabcc973e91e1165d34a3e38521cabb.jpga0d6a1f385faee21b438a3dd71a00b24.jpg1355425a00a408e52ad5662936d2c9dc.jpga05239274c45ca942e7f5b0491fb1245.jpg

Bita progress on the A post over last while. Put hinge panel on door to locate before welding. Gaps not to bad to quarter panel and swage line looks good. Got the outer panel on then and now looking at outer sill. Wondering to overlap sill and lower A post or cut and butt weld.? Obviously if overlap will have edge which don't want.5ba0b5837feef762a02a0d08751dceb1.jpg62a906b643f7574f57b0c5b6d71e511c.jpg159a8bb8a5b90c8f131dc6f081167e08.jpg8d36eb0b55f230762b23f47314951c69.jpg10d4cae1634b3670db6a39f3e3d43fcf.jpgb085481eddf4cd0589d3b47a5bdf439a.jpg3ea7ff61ebb3e3ce9d13d265bc812240.jpg060311274bd3ce92f3260b19e4ccd7ac.jpg

Bit more done over last while. A post finished. Removed black paint from inside sills and epoxy them and seat Cross members. Fitted seat Cross members and test fitted dashboard panel and top bulkhead. Fits OK with wee captive nut for screw for dash panel. Great to see dash in but my 6 Dial doesn't fit? Needs a cut maybe? 29ab34058bedb12bf47b60fc602f7f6e.jpg6049b2471e721e6c399caf235e351e6d.jpga5045b0bf296346a5df5b4369068fe24.jpgfe2204dd9a33410493915b939c9b3817.jpg0af2035dcb031ce65082f371cbaefbf6.jpg066edc88d7748c356e5608e5f88e0bdb.jpgbc5946c6a6214df1c8afacd4bb8a28d1.jpgff04793c947c5203c136180572527c9b.jpg600f1daca89d7c54964158f90fd26c9c.jpg
