Re-assembling a 110 5 door

I'm building up my 110 Station wagon at the moment , question is does the rear body go on first or the side frames? I remember it was a PITA to disassemble 3 years ago, involving a great deal of angle grinding and shearing of bolts, but now it's time to put clean galvanised bits back on.

From the one I'm doing ...

I removed the door posts before removing the rear tub and bulkhead. So I will be putting the tub back on followed by the bulkhead (left a little loose for further ajustments). Then the door posts and then the top. Make alot of mesurments for fitting the doors properly and getting everything nice and tight. And finish by securing all the fasteners one last time with every thing well aligned.

Just my 0.02$ here I'm no know it all expert but that is what I will be doing next week.

I will post pics in the rebuild threads by the end of this month.

Good luck !

Pat

Thanks for the input, I've already put one side frame on (and had to slacken off prevoiusly tightened bolts to get alignments right), encouragingly the side flare on the bodywork lines up nicely with the bulkhead. I'll hold off fitting the other side frame and try and ease the read tub on from a slightly side on starting point

In reality I'll probably end up taking the side frame off again.

Thanks for the input, look forwarf to seeing the pics

You can do it either way. I tend to assemble everything ie put the side frames (t-pieces) on the tub and then put it on as one piece, but I took the side frames in and out of a 109 without moving anything else so you can do it any way you want.

I think the side frame needs to come back off, both of you seem to fit theside frame to the rear tub. it's logical. it's the lighter of the two bits
Pnly 9 nuts and bolts to undo. better than the seat box at around 40!
