to the crazy world of covin ownership wher nothing is ever what it seems
Firstly the build manual is not up to much,some dimensions in the plans for the covin chassis were wrong,best place to start is in the build and restoration section,people have done many rebuilds from scratch like my second one or part builds. Ask questions we have all been there at some point and there is always more than one way to fix a problem,pictures speak a thousand words we like pics
Just a point on floor pans, the covin chassis does flex alot especially when you try an jack it up the doors won't open, the biscuit tin they had used for a floor pan is rubbish
I put a 4mm steel plate onto mine and it transformed the cars rigidty,if you wan't to put an aluminium floor pan in i would suggest put some extra supports in the chassis first it will pay off.
Anyway i will stop rabbiting on just keep asking and good luck with the rebuild
