Full length chassis rail

Discussion in 'Restorations' started by Llardy, Jun 15, 2015.

  1. Has anyone ever had a full length chassis fabricated or where you can buy as one piece? there is that many bits that could do with being done i'm just wondering if its easier to replace the 2 main chassis rails? think thats what they are called.

  3. I do not think it will be ,up to the rear axle looks straight forwards ,but after that looks a nightmare ,plus sagging issues having no support etc..

  6. Which home made jacking point? I see 3. :)
     
  7. The boxyest..:D
     
  8. It's probably for the best not to have jacking points if there's nothing above them.
     
  9. that is why I like the "all in one" idea...

    Jacking points are nothing, but cosmetic...

  11. I've just done it, there fairly straightforward to make yourself if you have the tools and know how. I replaced every bit of chasis practically from the front jacking points backwards! check my resto thread and you'll see some of the stages. happy to offer advice.

    Yeah it's my work, I had them made by a local engineering firm
     
  18. i dont suppose you'd disclose costs? or mail me. i could really do with these but it depends on cost. very tidy job

    It was a long time ago, I don't remember the cost but it wasn't outlandish, I could ask him, but getting it to you could be expensive due to the length, though if you're happy to weld it maybe it could be made in 1.25m lengths to make it cheaper to post
     
  20. im definately interested thanks
