hi all, i know its been a long time but im hoping to start on the shell this week , iv managed to remove some rust !. iv cut out the rest of the floor pan on the drivers side , mainly at the back , and reveled a nasty mess where someone had welded in a leaf spring panel ,also cleaned up the tunnel ready for the fitting of the floor and removed a messy front section of the floor , here are some pics.[frame][/frame]
What colour did you paint the prop shaft please and how did you do it .westy24 wrote:ok ,ive been busy doing abit more then what i expected on the morris ,these last few weeks , the prop ,seat base ,and steering column(you may be interest in what iv done with that one !!) first up is the finished prop.[frame][/frame]
I sanded it down on a DA sander using 80 grit then 240 grit. Then wire wheeled any rust off ,then etch primed ,primed it then used black aerosol on it , hen asked a mate to lacquer it for me. Hope this helps

Yes it does thanks for that fella
I found out that just putting 3 steels in to support the body was enough.here you can see them also the rest of the sill panels cut away, I measured the door gap before and after I cut the sill out[frame][/frame]
I trial fitted the floor panel to see how it fits , it didn't fit well at all , the holes for the gearbox cover( in the chassis ) doesn't line up with the floor holes , although they are not that far out .the rear part of the floor was twisted so I had to remove the rear part of the floor up right so it sat better .[frame][/frame]
They can be rust traps and arnt ideal for jacking up on. Iv got new ones but haven't fitted them. Make sure they get a good waxoyling after you've fitted them and don't jack of them. Should be ok then.
