Collection of chassis from Tiger

On a sunny Saturday morning we took a Mercedes Sprinter van up to Tiger to collect the chassis along with the other parts ordered. As the van has tool chests bolted in the back we had to lift the chassis on to the roof off the van. A bit of a struggle, but we got there in the end - the roller on the end of the roof rack helped a lot. Wish I'd taken the bubble wrap off as the performance/fuel consumption penalty on the way home was massive!

After loading up with the additional parts we headed down the road to the Tiger workshop to pick up the donor parts ordered and go out for a drive in one of the Tiger demonstrator cars. While at the workshop I had an opportunity to take lots (100-ish) of photos of an Avon being factory built. These should prove invaluable during my build. They can be found here:

Then time for a spin in the Aviator with Jim.
