Coming along Jamie,

Did you just get a few blokes to lift the body off ???

I've had to lift my body on and off a few times and didn't always have the extra hands around when I wanted to do it.

I made a lifting jig with a cheapo winch from ebay. This made it an easy 1 man job.

I lift the body up enough to slide the chassis away from under it, the wheels are on dollies.

Hopefully, next time I sit the body back on it will be there for good.

You seem to have plenty of floor space which is always a good thing.

Will you be sandblasting the chassis yourself ??

Danny

Just happened to run onto this, and was wondering if you may have the driver door panel with worn upholstery, and if so, so you want to part with it. I am in need of a used panel for a car that I'm putting back together, and I want it to match the rest of the car. Thanks, Paul
