Cross member bits

The rear cross member on Fender's chassis is being replaced at the end of this week.

There are several other rusty bits, firmly corroded on to the chassis. I have prepared a small package of new bits to go back on after the repair.


The new mud guard brackets are aluminium however they bolt to the steel chassis. Different metals touching each other causes corrosion. This is especially true of aluminium against steel.


I've cut and punched some rubber spacers to try to reduce the bi-metal effect.


The other bits are Jate rings and a set of new bolts where the body panels bolt on to the chassis.
