Well Schools out for about six weeks so I have time to work on the car starting this week. First thing I did this week was to make a small electrolysis tank (2gallon bucket) may have to make a bigger one as it works really well.

I also got all my transmission tunnel tacked in place including making the hand brake lever.

Next is CP11 I have the already laser cut from 2mm steel just need to bend the 25mm X 2 mm strip round them.
After that fit the front diagonals and now I can also fit the seat back diagonals with those dreaded compound angles.
Then weld up all the tacked rear and transmission tunnel.

check out the blog for details and pics

Just caught up with your build blog Laurence. You have made a nice job of that 4 link rear end, its very much the same sort of set up that went into the early Westfields. I have actually driven one with a solid axle and they still handle well. IRS is not the be all and end all just a nicety.
