Ken what am i going to do when i inflate the tyres? its goin to knock all my measurements out!

 

:-) :-)

 

reminds me of the engineer watching the navvies laying flagstones . They noticed him watching intently so went over to talk to him , when he told them he was looking at their tolerances because he was an engineer and worked to within a 1,000th of an inch they replied : " Nah that wouldnt be right for us .. we have to get them bang on! "

laser is lined up to halfway on reg plate, the numerals arent centred in case anyone wonders why the vertical does not strike the '1'

 

goes without saying the drill holes are centred :rofl:

 

engine block has the corect number for chassis thankfully

 

it cleaned up good in the caustic soda bath

That I do. I've been thinking about a laser tracking gadget for when I re-fit the front sub-frame.
