    Has anyone on here any experience of doing this or, indeed, any other steel underframe. Looking for procedures, design details or anything relevant for an organisation wanting to do this.

    Yes I personally have assisted in the production of shortened two PMV underframes to our set procedure, five more had been done on previous occasions.
