lancelot link is on a distinguished road

So what do you do when you find out that the chassis / rear axle you are using as a pattern has a 20mm discrepency that has affected wheel placement in the rear arch one wheel would sit inboard 20mm more than the other ... ?

You cut the rear of the body off completely and move it over 10mm !!

We have been chasing a discrepency for ages , couldn't work out why the templates and tape measure were fighting each other remedied !!

The front has not moved as its measuring up accurately ...a bit of extra work in the sill and doorshut area , but worth it in the long run ...

Glan put extra bracing on using 3'' x 2'' lengths of wood to ensure nothing moves she is also starting to get quite heavy ...
