I got a Richard's heavy duty chassis a couple of years ago. Very happy with it, I think standard Land Rover are 1.6mm, normal galvanised 2mm and heavy duty 3mm. Should see me out!

We put a marsland under ours last winter, mainly due to britparts having one in stock as there were long lead times dealing directly. No problems with the chassis though.
Also painted it with 2 pack epoxy primer and topcoat then blasted all the rest of the running gear serviced and painted.

Obviously noone would ever dream of doing such a thing, but has anyone cut out the old chassis number and welded it into a replacement Galv one thn painted it etc, as I am led to believe they're not stamped?
