Early 127 chassis stretch / reinforcements

Does anyone have photos or information on the frame stretch done to early 127s and reinforcements that were applied? I have found some descriptions stating that the frames were plated, top and bottom, with flat bar to stiffen them up but I haven't seen any good photos.

Thanks

JL

My recollection is that LR cut the chassis then sleeved it. The sleeved sections had holdesin that would serve to increase the number of welds involved in the stretch.

I did this to make a 110 chassis a 127/130. I had 4 channels bent to sleave over and around the chassis then welded it into place.

Based on the factory chassis diagram and dimensions.

Howdy Ron! It is hard to believe those pictures were taken back in 2002!
I'm still messing about on my own stuff nowadays, just not nearly as prolific as before ;-)
