Chassis Outriggers

Post by Nick » Fri Mar 10, 2017 12:11 pm

Looking at mine, a bit flaky, so thinking about changing.

I would not do this myself ,so,

Where could I source them?

How big a job?

If this job is not done carefully then the body will change shape , causing lots of problems

Thanks guy,s food for thought.

Have spoken to Danny in the past and got the impression he is really only into competition cars these days.

Would Terry Cox do it? I know he looked after that car for many years

I see Terry at Prescott, he used to look after my car. Yes, he is effectively retired now.

I can find a local firm but any experiences would be useful.

Hi Nick. Dillon at ADS Auto Fabrications on 07977 727357 did my chassis welding and Dynamic mouldings (who did the GRP work on StaR) are on hand in the same yard for any GRP advise/help.
