The Chassis build



Well I have done some more work on my Europa so through I would post up my progress so far

Having seen some racing Europa’s done with a Lotus chassis, I copied their modifications to make my chassis stronger and more ridged ready for hill climbing



Next the chassis went off for powder coating along with the suspension and all the odds and ends


It was next time to remove the old chassis, seeing a body shell lifting off the chassis and revealing its secrets is always good fun



I was surprised it was actually better than I through it would be



I have rebuilt my steering rack and have made up most of the brake pipes and am doing a mock fit up at the moment, this is my favourite bit of a restoration I’m having problems leaving the garage

Thankfully Sarah my wife has the patience of a saint



Not much room at the moment in my garage I am building a double garage on the other side of the house this spring, so should have more space soon..I cant wait !


I’m hoping to have the chassis finished soon so I can crack on rebuilding the engine
