Default chassis

Hi All

With the power unit now built up I've started construction of my chassis. I'm building it in wood first to make sure all is well before I cut any metal!! Basically I've copied the deon chassis dimensions to start with and will adjust it as I go on. I've built it in three bits,front section,middle or cockpit and rear or engine bay.
I'm going to build a flat table and place the chassis on it and start by positioning the engine and then I can work from the engine drive shafts centre line.
Hopefully I'm going to get to measure the 246 shell and original chassis sometime in feb.

Photo 3 is front frame
Photo 4 is the cockpit
The cockpit requires a centre tunnel building in but I need to purchase the 246 tunnel moulding and gearshift moulding to get accurate measurements.
