Also interesting stuff about your 'daily drivers' etc. or interesting cars you have seen on your travels, even motors-based TV shows you can recommend. Please, no 'For Sale' or 'Want To Buy' ads, plugs for your 'business', links to 'for sale' ads or Ebay links to your (or your mate's) auction (use the VZi 'Classifieds' section) - this also includes thinly veiled 'What's My Car Worth?' threads and "Who Can Sell Me A . . ." posts.

Ok so

We have chassis issues, lots of very poor repairs and sadly they are all over the chassis, we will be doing local repairs.

First up passenger front beam mount area.



The new repair which has a slightly tailer repair as the inner section also needed a repair (both sides).



Other side

Everything has been braced before the work started!



Front nose work

This is the edge of the old skin, a reason to replace the nose in it's self!





The nose is ready to fit now and is just about to be painted on the inside before fitting.

Impressive work as ever, it didn't even look 'that bad' to begin with.
