13/60 Herald body to chassis bolt locations.

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Am having to make a small alteration to the rear tub of my convertible as when assembled (not by me),,,but by a bit of a bodger,  the space to the doors is too tight.

As said in the title of this thread (excuse the pun), I am trying to identify where all the bolts are lurking that i need to loosen to knock bad the tub a tad or two!

I have undone the bolts across the floor where the front meets the back, in the boot I have found the bolts to the angled boot outriggers. I have found 2 bolts over the diff and I believe I need to unbolt the 2 outer seat belt mounting rings.

I believe there may be some bolts through the edge of the floor tub passing through the outriggers?

Anyone that can advise, please help.

Cheers Alan

Thanks Glan,

Now having another look underneath have found positions E & F, E was ok, but F is duffed again by a COACH BOLT!

Using a light and a mirror, I can look into the chassis cavity and see a nut securing the coach bolt. Have cut into the bolt head so i can loosen it with a scredriver and hammer, but will try to remove it and replace with a bolt and the plate(with captive nut) as shown!

Happy days!
