Hi Robert

Driver’s side out rigger is holed, the nearside has been previously repaired and I’ve have had the rear bodywork/seatbelt brackets repaired so I’m thinking of taking the body off to see what condition the rest of the chassis is in and then carryout all the repairs it need in one go. The rear trailing arm brackets were also a bit flaky so there could be a bit of fabrication to done along with the more standard repairs so I’d like to find someone who’s done this type of work before and can keep the geometry lined-up.

Not 100% sure if it would be his thing. But as far as welding and fabrication goes, Stephen Wishart does superb work. He does lots of work for the Mk2 Escort rally guys, and some of those cars are outstanding. DOnt know if he'd go to the lengths of removing the body off the chassis, or if you'd need to do that and leave the chassis down to him. Give him a shout though.
He's based around Ballyronan

Nigel,

I have all the jigs for s-series cerbera and chimaera/griff chassis outriggers and we have replaced the outriggers on more than 20 TVR's. If you want to discuss this further PM me and I'll contact you.

Hi Robert, are you still working on replacing TVR outriggers. I also live in Northern Ireland.
