    Thanks.

    The shot blaster wasn’t really powerful enough (or the compressor wasn’t) for the chassis, it took a lot of time to get it done. It was ok on some smaller parts, but to be honest I wouldn’t bother and use twist knot wire wheels for smaller parts in future, less mess

    Today was a milestone day. Nothing fixed yet but the body is back on and sitting in the right position. It only took an hour from unloading the chassis to loading the car back onto the trailer.

    Ingenious lifting method, it could do with a good power wash!

    I don't think the trailer could have been a tighter fit if you tried!

    Good progress!

    Exactly what I was thinking! Mr Bamford would not be happy!! Nice old JCB. I had a similar one when I built my place. So bloody useful. It's a great place to tie a block and tackle for a controlled lift and so easy for a simple lift like a body.

    Well done Gary, progress indeed
