Put a temporary wooden cross member in with a heavy welder hing off of it to stabilise the front, had to re-tap the holes due to the new paint and this extended wrench was perfect for the job.

Hell of job getting this in place, its very heavy and awkward, thought i could use the old U-bolts but when i put a gauge against the treads they are past it so new ones needed.

Thought i'd finish off with an easy job, the dash vents, except all the old #8 screws are sheared off, my fault for not looking before paint but now a rather tricky job of drilling the old ones out.

It's looking good Brad. Happy days putting it back together. Love the colour but it won't be quite as fast as the red tigers. :wink:
