    so with some careful planning, measurements, two big pry bars and an angle grinder the body was removed from the chassis.

    new chassis set out for mock up.

    As always your speed at doing things can only be matched by the speed I do things but with several orders of magnitude!!!!

    Anyhow, looking good, and you inspired me and I got the RHS of my motor built up last night. Hopefully the other side tonight then the spare motor should be ready for you
