TSM - Bringing it back.... slowly

Post by Jc29cdo » Wed Mar 18, 2020 10:45 am

After what has felt like an eternity the chassis is now complete. What I thought was a quick cut and shut of the front outriggers and side rail actually turned out to be a near full restoration of the chassis. However, I’m now confident that the chassis will last for another 40 years at least and give be a good basis to build from. The rolling chassis has now gone back to the garage where I’ve stored the body for the past 12 months. Once its back it’s time to move onto getting it running and driving (not too worried about this) and then onto the electrics which were shot when I purchased it.

It's interesting to see how simple the Coupe chassis looks in comparison. :)
