120mm on a non galv chassis, a galv (CVH mounts only) chassis, a galv Ti chassis and a galv mk1.5 Sabre chassis.
is that not 'all' ? , or only the selection that you have? :wink:

I see that the holes in tub are pretty 'generous' so should have been able to hit the mounting-hole somewhere?
but you will need a HUGE washer?

SS1 1600 (AJZ ----), C30 (SK 57 ---)& 480 ( .. . EVU & . . . . CDC)
Regal 330 (VAV ---) now passed to another 'keen owner'

That was the bare chassis I have in the workshop (although the Sabre isn’t actually bare and I forgot that the remains of batmobile are outside).

Brilliant, that's great, thanks. I presume my donor sills have had a bad repair at some point and gained 10mm! I'll check my body, but if I have 3 holes, I'll just keep the 2 bolt mounts and lower them a bit.
