Things are moving very fast here with the chassis now all completed and ready to be sprayed, it’s onto the GRP body for the passenger compartment. However much you draw up plans and measure to the millimetre, it’s still one of those parts of the process where ‘fettling’ is involved.

The first stage is to make a basic tub and then add in the components to size and tweak them accordingly until they look right, feel right and sit right.

Once all of this is done then moulds are taken off this pattern so the seven tubs for the ride can be made ready for the theming and mating to the chassis. It may be easier to see this in pictures, so here’s how it works in order.
