Didn't take much poking around for the bottom to literally fall out!

The replacement front end had a pretty decent lower member I could use, just the ends needed repairing, the best solution I could find anywhere.

The inner parts weren't too bad, rotten pieces taken out and the rest cleaned up ready for repair sections to be made up.

Repair sections were made from thick plate using card then plywood templates before making out of the thick stuff, much easier too make alterations out of card than thick steel!

The "new" cross member was ready for fitting to the car so now I was sure how much to chop from the car it finally got rid of the rotten section, the dusty section laid on the floor shows how bad it had got!

The ends of the chassis rails were in a state also once the old metal was cut away which meant more repairs before the new member could be fitted

The rot from the chassis ends was cut away up to solid metal then readied for the repair sections, I decided the bets course of action was to attach the member which would allow simple repair pieces to be made exactly to suit.

The ends of the member I'd cap off once on the car

Sections being let in, again in thick steel as this is a high strength area.

This end of the chassis has the bolts for the engine mount so a sturdy repair was needed

Passenger side was much the same apart from the lack of engine mount bolt holes

At last the front of the car can be supported by the cross member again!

A lot of pictures in one go so I'll do another update if there's interest?

All a bit out of sequence though as this was all a couple of years ago now!

Kevin,
You clearly have the patience (and perseverance) of Job!
It's an absolutely wonderful transformation.
I can't wait to see the front with it's final coat of red....!!!
