http://jubainthemaking.com/fr/story-of-mary-part-3/ It is possible to carry out major repairs on the Renault 4 chassis by separating it from the body of the car. New pressed sections are now available therefore the repairs can be made to look indistinguishable from the original panel shapes preserving the original appearance.
charmingly This can be carried out on the cars’ original chassis, or on a chassis from a donor vehicle prior to car shell/ chassis separation. If the chassis condition is beyond repair and a donor vehicle cannot be acquired, then new reproduction chassis are available from France.
Whatever the choice, each chassis will have drainage holes created and internal cavity wax protection carried out.
