My word, just look at all that black underseal and Waxoyl! The underneath was absolutely brilliant for a 1976 UK car. All spring hangers etc (not shown, obviously) were perfect
Underneath view of floor looking back. Black fuel pipe can be seen on left of pic. Square hole is used to gain access to Hardy Spicer on MG propshaft/box. The cross member used to mount MG box is 55 mm too far forward and too high for Ford gearbox. It has to go. Everyone else gets rid of it so it was zapped.
I eventually decided where to cut it out. The reinforcing tubes must be removed to insert some 60 mm square tubes up each side crossmember. So it is cut along the white lines. The angle of the lines is exaggerated by perspective in the picture.
