Ok.

Apologies to drag up an old topic (literally, mine was the first post, and the last)...

Basically, the timing is right (worked my a##e off at work, and have appropriate time in leau, and cash saved...) for next week to be the week where I finally start making some upward progress on Arthur.

However, I've spent about half an hour in the pub tonight, arguing with my dad on which bit to replace first...

Basically, the lower floor edges are sh##ged, the chassis legs are sha##ed and the cross member needs replacing.

Should I replace the floor edges first, then the x/member, then the chassis legs, or the xmember & chassis legs, THEN the floor edge?

I'm off to Tom Roy's next week...  :D

my prefrence would be chassis legs and crossmember, while you still have old floor in to use as reference points, as long as it is securely attached at bulkhead you can then safely remove old floors, I presume you will be trimming round centre tunnel area, as these rarely go which will also give you a central reference point and securing point for crossmember to aid with alinement, others may/will differ,

Thanks for bumping this thread up the order. I could do with some extra sleepless nights... :shock:  :wink:

And it's not even my car!

The expert advice freely given so far is fantastic. Sorry I can't help with your latest request except to say: read and re-read what has been said before... :?

Found this quality thread AGAIN so Just resurrecting it as it's going to be of use to myself when I come to do the welding on Maude. Hopefully I'll be cracking on during Christmas and new year.
