looking good bud, soon be on with the body work!!

have you decided whether your going for a roller jig ? ( fully recommend ) - wish I had got one at the start......


I am seriously considering it. My two major concerns are space and cost. :ohno:

Most of my body work is front end. I am guessing these panels should be fitted without it being on a roller jig or do you think that doesnt matter?
yeah two fair points, they're not cheap....but you could build one ?

honestly I don't think you can correctly put a new front end on without using the front subframe as a bolt on guide as such ( could be wrong ) the roller jig uses the same mounting points.

if your only doing the front end, it might not be worth buying one...


someone might comment saying it can be done without subframe. all I know is it made life a lot easier haha and I knew it was square with the body


keep up the good work

If it worked for you then it sounds right to me. Your build looks awesome so it looks like worked.

I like the idea of using sub frame as guide for front end. Will use that.

I'll know a bit more when engine is out so watch this space!

Thanks again.

Ben
