Once I had the rear axle mounting points sorted I began trying to get the Chassis square so it wouldn't crab down the road! Best way was to make a JIG using an 8ftx4ft 18mm MDF sheet which I marked out the exact shape required to be 100% sure the finished chassis would be square.

Once I had the chassis rails in the JIG I tack welded some temporary cross bars to keep it square. Then I took the jig of the stands and back on the floor with the rear axle bolted to it. The plan is to leave the JIG in place as long as possible and add to it as the chassis is being built. This way I can build another chassis again quickly from scratch if desired!
