Just an update got the new chassis back yesterday and set it up ready for the paint system, it has had a zinc rich epoxy primer then high build primer and finally top coat with a high solids content, the system was developed in the north sea and is said to have a 20 year life span adding to this the fact it can be repaired or repainted makes it the ideal chassis covering.
As if I haven’t got enough TVR’s in bits I am doing a 500 griff chassis change, thought you lads might be interested, story so far is car came to me for outriggers but on removing the body it soon became apparent that a chassis was required, i have sourced one from r t racing it is now off being shot blasted prior to my chassis treatment it is going to be silver all be it a commercial ral colour, got some works to do on the power plant new valley gasket and some prettying up of the motor itself, also losing the long defunct air con so a few pics to give you a flavour of the job so far.
Got a bit more done Friday, front suspension is now a reality couple of mods to get it perfect but am happy with the result fully adjustable no stripping down required to adjust plus lighter and far more tuneable shocks springs etc. etc. the shock on there at the moment is an old Chimaera Bilstein will be having gas gold pros probably as have fitted a couple of sets recently not least to my chim and they seem o.k. for fast road.
