Set up the Jaguar xj6 front and rear suspension ride height to suit the higher profile tires I'll be running. With the original chassis rails in place, it was determined the diff arch needed to lift 40mm to give the axles clearance. Made a template to give me end result I needed. The new channels I had made are working out well.

Chassis cont... When I had the channels folded up, I made allowance for one set to fit inside the other. This is to become the boxing channel. I had to make a dimple die to press the holes into the boxing rail. These holes correspond with the cab mount fixing bolts. I used a hole saw, then the dimple die in the press. Once I had the dog leg finished, I assembled the two halves and positioned them to mark out the diff mounting positions. Disassembled again to drill the holes then reassembled to there final position. A final check of the suspension tracking and I temporarily tacked the rear suspension to the chassis. Bent the tubes up to suit and tacked into place
