      I know what you mean re the money Matt. Some things are a trade off. But Imagine going home at the end of the day week in and week out. .........

      " Hi Honey, how was your day ? "...

      "Great Darl, got 160 quid for resetting the thermostat on a Carrier 'Oh So Warm' heat pump. The grey 2.7 kw model. The series 2 with the honeywell controller. Man they are hard to remove. Had to use a philips screwdriver and the long nose pliers ! I took a few photos so I'll just post them on the " Well off Plumbers" forum and see what the other guys have been up to ".............................................

                  not sure if it's any help but i can print off car-o-liner jig measurements at work, that will give you a centre line and the datum point and subsequent measurements from that

                But as this is universal Jig you can mount anything on it..... the overhead measuring is what we wanted.... so you can make anything .
                Big thanks to ....

                  Cheers Neil , looking for a 1974 “G” 911S last of the chrome mirror cars.
                  Will give you a nod if we cannot find anything....

                  Haven’t done Jig work since when I was at Prestige Paintworks....on the old Aston.

                    Niel , Can you look and see what they have for 356 and 911 ,

                    the 911 should be 1964-68 (short wheelbase) , 69-73 and 74 to somewhere in the 1980s

                      i will have a look dave, i doubt that you will get much more info about a 356 than you get from the data sheet in the workshop manual, being a hand built body differences between the datum points could be greater than 3mm either way. you could make your own jig brackets, the dimensions for the items that push in the axle tubes are on the data sheet. i had a mate turn some up for my front axle tube out of t6 aluminium, and used them on the jig i made up.

                      are you thinking just for restoration or accident damage also?
                      thanks neil

                        really both ! the cars that are getting built anymore are almost scrap , crashed hard years ago or very rusty ,

                        would be nice to know the factory points for door hinge pockets , bumper brackets etc

                        thanks

                            Just a quick little set up to see how the up and over works out.

                            it’s a better Jig then the Global Jig...😉
