The Body is good! The paint was not so good But Ok for my needs, But on picking it up I shrink wrap it in the hope not to chip it on the way home and moving it etc and it did this ::),,

The best thing for an old trike IRS backend :), I was going to cut all the mounts off but less work?? to weld the lot in :D I may narrow the tubes as well as I'm not using torsion bars and it will let me get the 10" slot mags in the body line

I hope it will end up like>

The boss :) gave me a hand to get the 64 chassis off and the 67 on the roller, The chassis is not as good as I was hoping it has had a lot of work in the past, And now needs a frame head :'( all ways the way the back end is good and I'm swapping it for an Irs one
,
but as it is a bit of a street/rat rod it will do!,,1st job hover out the rat's nest in the tunnel and pans...next pie cut,

Why working on the chassis, I pop the shell on a 64 chassis, So I can test fit? things ;-)up At the time of buying shell I pad a bit more for the lights etc So I started fitting them back on, And pop a Jaz seat in :) but not for long ::)


I did a bit of dumpster diving for a big box  ???


and made a seat ::)

a nice tuck and roll bench seat, now that would be different in a buggy.

I was going to fit a t2 handbrake and have a full bench seat" and make it a rock and roll, And uses the rear seat bottom,, so it would fit in the front to make a bed??  Looks like it Will be made out of steel ,,As the only cheap sheets of aluminum are in Coventry! And I'm looking to keep away from the 90's? billet aluminum look and little to no! chrome,

As the rear tyre is on the spring plate in the pics, And the only way is to bin the wheels or cut the body or lift it up bleugh So it is narrow time :D and as I was all ways going to IRS my next buggy, I pick up an irs back end from a trike,, It is lucky? in a way as the welding was bad! and I'm cutting that bit off,,
 

some bad! welding ::)

Going to loss the torsion bars and make some arms lucky as I had some 3/4 rose joint from my autograss days!

Mine was the extended one, slightly longer and hinged at the end



with the extra awning on the side



My 1300 Buggy pulled it perfectly
