We may have the highest 15 window ownership densities in Australia!

How fare away are you with getting the 15 back on the road ?

Have a look at my pics for mounting spots, I made a few plates and bolted them to the front and rear suspension points worked well with no flex later.

hahahah i bloody hope so the rust isnt very bad now just a couple of little spots in the chassis but once I get it strong enough to go onto the rotisserie will make it 100 time more easier :)

Being able to spin it on its side is magic, makes it so easy to work on it. Once you get it back from blasting watch the media pour out of the cracks for days ;)

Didn't think it needed the whole sides and front removed but damn ..you weld the chassis crack before you cut it up as it will flex big time ...good luck
Straight axle is better than IRS

yehh your right it didnt need the whole nose and sides removed but I thought since its going to the sandblasters I wanted to get rid of as most rust as possible and I suppose it might save on panel beating costs if I do the whole panel instead of just half to :) , ive plated up the bottom of the chassis crack yesterday before I dropped the front end and it was a shit of a thing welding on your back D: so its only the side to plate up now and the bulk head is now 100% welded in
cheers Jacob :)
