Where to get Chassis sections from?

Postby MrE » Tue Jan 02, 2007 2:21 pm

I discovered that most of my chassis is like swiss cheese on saturday. :roll: Where would be the best place to get new chassis setions from or would it be best to get them fabricated?

Available from Minor parts specialists. ESM and Bull Motif to name just two. Try entering Morris Minor parts an a search engine, that should reveal a few.

If you are putting in your porsche engine, you may be better off fabricating a new one out of box section, then just drop your body on top.
If not, then most motor factors stock Hadrian panels, or go through the likes of ESM.

I am actually gong to use both Porsche and the Minor Chassis so it actually has two. I need the minor chassis for the suspension mounts and the porsche chassis fot the engine and transmission mounts. they fit together quite nicely.
