No problem. The car we're developing them on is a long-term resident of ours (the owner doesn't have a garage so secretly I think he's happy it's with us!) but once they're on it'll feature in the photo album on our FB page. But yes, will drop you a PM too.

Mine are apparently cracked and split around the bolt holes - might have something to do with my 136kgs!

At least that's something you really can't blame the PO for at 55 kg or so... hehe

Quite true....you'd have a fair bit of work on to get a Chimaera through an IVA today. That said, you could say the same thing about most kit cars from the mid-90's, and sadly some of the ones currently on offer.

Regarding the seats, we (Southways) have developed some retro-fit seat anchoring plates which we'll be fitting to the blue Chimaera we're refurbing, and once we're happy with them we'll be putting them on the market.
We believe the design of the seat mounting is better on the Chimaera/Griffith than the earlier Wedges and S models, because the GRP is formed to be more rigid around the front mounts. However, both of the rear mounts are bolted through a relatively flat area which isn't all that strong. Only takes someone to overtighten the seats with inadequate washers a couple of times and the area is damaged.
Could you please PM me once your happy with the modification please.
Thank you
Not complete yet, but this should give you an idea of the way they're heading:



So far they anchor three of the seat mounting points using the corner outrigger mount and one of the exhaust mountings (we chose these because they're nice M10 fixings) though this involves a small modifcation to the exhaust mounting 'tray.'

Hello !

To begin I plaese you to excuse my bad english but I hope you will understand me well.

We hold in Hungary our workshop and the office in germany. By us are now three Chimis to rebulid. One MK I and two MK II. To refit the outrigger or whole chassis we offer to oure customer alternativ conception. Therefore that one repair of the outrigger as individual work on the chassis which is as whole attacked by rust we advise to completely overhaul of the chassis and suspension.

We offer alternaiv/optional routes for the restore after sandblasting and cut out of the unhealthy areas.

1.) restore of the normal steel parts or of stainlees steel parts
2.) powder coating of the chassis and suspensio after previous treatment phospath
3.) galvazing of the of the whole chassis (inside and outside) and suspension PLUS powder coating of chassis and suspension

finaly for all options the chassis get a good stone chip/rockfall protection and who wish wax.

To now all customer used route 3. It´s good for longe time and made a apprecation for the car. But by us are the fee less as in UK.


Regards

Gregor

Thx a lot but the galvanzing is only perfekt if it dont will get stroke. But the tyre
never stop to send dirt from the street to the outriggers. Therefore we offer as one of the best solution for this section to place stainless steel there. I think the combine of the protection are well. The perfect would be to produce the whole chassis in stainless steel. The price for this is secret but high.

do I understand this good?

galvanizing inside and outside incl suspension and after that a good stone chip-rockfall protection?

that must give some very good rust protection me thinks.

sounds even better Gregor, that is some proper anti rust protection and a great peace of mind when you do a "restauration"
