68 saloon rolling shell

Here are a few pics of my new project. Once all the welding is complete and replacement panels added I might consider a bigger engine and make a few modifications.
Hope you like the fabricated spit on the ramp which works a treat :D

Thanks Al, but it's my dad's place, I just keep filling it with vehicles. :)

Cheers. It works really well because as the pole is square section and the holes round all I have to do when it is in the correction position is screw some blocks against the flats. I can also raise the bed (with some old tyres on) to take some support at whatever position.

Well I have started stripping it down, cutting out the rot and welding in the new panels.
