    My plan is to cut the outriggers off halfway between the backbone and the outer edge. Then sleeve the remaining sections of tube ion the inside of the tube. Make up some new outer sections and slide that over the inner sleeve tube, then weld all three sections of tube together, if that makes sense.

    I am working on a budget so I intend to try and clean off the chassis with cup brushes and wire wheels in the angle grinder. Depending on how that goes will determine whether it gets blasted or not

    No. Like I said I am trying to work to a budget and in my opinion that’s unnecessary expense. Unless you can show me where I can get a kit for beer money!

    I had a couple of days off work as I was unsure how long it would take to get the body off, so I have spent it stripping the chassis.
