  • Cross member position

    The front end of my Mk1 Mexico has undergone some restoration work. When it came to replacing the cross member I discovered the original mounting holes have disappeared due to the welding in of fresh metal so now I don't know the correct position to mount the cross member. Is there a reference point to measure from to ensure it's mounted in the right position?

      Thanks. Very helpful. The really detailed ones are for 1975 onwards but am I right in thinking the MK1 and Mk2 chassis are the same, it's just the body that's different?

          Crossmember bolts to the chassisrails.
          Nothing really matters, and the rest doesn't matter at all.
