Alan,

Contact Chris Prince, I have found him really amenable to helping out with obscure information. He is also willing to send images too which may help consolidate your understanding.

Alan,

One of the advantages of our hotter and drier climate is the reduction in corrosion. My TA21's chassis is untouched and still has the original paint.

On my TA the bottom plate of the crossmember is butted against the closing panel of the chassis rail and welded, not very well, along its length, maybe a historic repair?. On my TE the bottom plate of the crossmember is sandwiched between the chassis closing panel and the underside of the top hat section of the rail and again welded along its length.It does not look as though the crossmember plate extends far into the chassis as the chassis closing plate is only distorted at its edge.As far as I know the TE is original.

Alan,

Is it possible to post some images especially before you seal the box sections? Images and commentary will certainly assist others venturing down that path.

All the best.
