I ramember way back, just before the Paihia Nats, 1990 i think. I'd just built my 54 Vauxhall custom to take there and VeeDub (Darren) was making a few refinements to his bucket. He'd seen a tilt up body (probably Kerry Grant?) and decided he had to go one better. After much careful study of his mother's ironing board, he came up with a mechanism to lift the whole body on his bucket -"the ironing board principle!"

Worked good 'cept it needed about 3 people to lift the body, and also involved disconnecting the steering, which was OK if you remembered to hook it back up again. Unfortunately, this didn't always happen...:rolleyes:
