Flying 12 Restoration in Progress
The body of the Flying 12 has been stripped out and separated from it's chassis.
The first instalment of this restoration project was documented earlier. Graham Hart emails again from Manchester with the next phase of the restoration, separating the chassis from the body, so that both can be worked on independently:

Anyway, having stripped the vehicle of its front end and interior more than my previous pictures I sent out previously. Splitting the body from the chassis went according to plan for a change with the exception of the weather.
Now the split is complete the chassis is back at the home workshop having been well steamed off and will start the refurbishment of whilst I pluck up the courage to start the sand blasting of the body and days of welding it requires.
