Body gaps being set-up for paint 3Next major step after having the chassis painted, was to start the final fit of the bodyshell to the chassis, for what I hope will be the last time. As the doors and rear body have the support tubes glassed in now, and this is the final fit to set-up the all the panel gaps, before we glass the front onto the chassis....and then paint the body.
