Hi all, managed to get the chassis up on four wheels  I've had to take some liberties with the suspension to get it too sit this low. Basically axles are just glued to the frame - not very pretty but then I don't plan on displaying it upside down !.

Not too much more to do now so hope to have it finished over the weekend.
Thanks for looking.
Andy

Thanks Anne & sorry for the delay in replying.
For the chop I started by cutting off the door pillars and then made two cuts A/B and then removed a slice from the rear pillars. With the door pillars gone I could then gently bend down the roof to meet the loweedr rear pillars. The resulting gap in the top of the roof was filled in with Evergeen plastic sheet and Tamiya Epoxy filler. The slanted door pillars C and rain channel were added with sheet plastic and the door line scribered in. I normally use Humbrol liquid cement.
Hope above makes sense but this picture may help.

The engine was sprayed with the same paint as the body through an airbrush.
Cheers
Andy
