Looks great Ray, I have scanned over your thread again, we have indeed tread a very similar path, I'm a way off putting the engine back in, but on the front suspension at the moment, nearly done, then onto the rear axle.

Keep up the fab work.

wish me luck

Did not use a jig just used the dimensions in the handbook and fitted items to check ie front wheel sub frame.
