got a bit done on bronzey
then went and picked up my new jig n welded it all up
after welding up the jig i fitted it to the car then painted the jig to stop it rusting and started to clean/degrease the bottom of the car

A-frame works well, going to knock one of them up for mine I think.

Is that just bolted to the tie-bar mount on the front? What did you do at the back?
