    Thanks Hugh, I hadnt noticed the grooves before, yours is the only frame I Ve seen disasembled . I think my most challenging issue will be the outside curve the only reference points I have are the cowl, front door and a rear tub in poor shape. Also rust mark on the valance panel .

    Thanks Hugh , I was a bit hesitant about mentioning the no glue in case it stirred some debate . Our timber these days is cut from less mature (smaller diameter) trees so there would be a need to laminate and join pieces to get the required profile/size at a reasonable cost.

    Thanks Rod I think the local Bunnings stocks it as well. I met up with an old retired coach builder in 1980 most of his wrk was with Queensland Maple and Coachwood when in short supply they used straight grain Oregon. Interestly he said they never used glue as frame needed to flex. No doubt due to the poor state of the roads.

    Hi Rod, The car was recovered off a farm and had been uted at some stage. Apart from a front door all the original timber was long gone, rear doors and centre pillars also missing when I got the car.! Given its farm use it will need a full strip down and everything checked and refurbished. I have collected over the years many mechanical parts but have never been able to locate anyone who saved replaced timber frame pices or a parts car with woodwork intact. It makes a more interesting restoration 😀 Kind regards Norm

    Thanks Brice It appears that a 22 and 23 may be narrower at the front than the 25. ..? Hugh has done an amazing job documenting his 25 , I can at least identity all my missing pices now..😀 And have a handle on how the frame goes together structurally.
