One of the many project series I'm watching. I'm also loving Bramble, rebuild of a MkIII Cortina. Boy was she rotten.

Have done a lot of things in the past (when younger and fitter)--re-built front ends, back ends--even changed a complete roof on a transit
Have also modified cars , put 6r4 kit on metro--forrest kit on escorts also placed such as v6 Essex engine into a mk1 escort-and lots more--all of which were done with a logic in mind,(the structure was good to start with so really I was making the cars my own and putting my stamp on them
Would never think of doing what the guy in the vid does as it seems to me ,there is a fine line between re-build and re-MAKE (triggers brush on only fools and horses comes to mind)

Rather him than me!!! lol






and theres more on his youtube channel! :)
I certainly wouldn’t recommend anyone taking on a job like this with v,little or no prior experience in accident repair, pretty misleading skillshare plug crap.
No data sheets! No jig work! And looking at the ins/r/q and leg I bet the chassis out at least a few mill in parts. He’ll be crabbing down the road when he’s done, if he gets all the parts to fit 🤭
