This relationship is getting complicated

I cut away half of the rear chassis today, reconfigured it so all is flush with the new rails.

A flat bottomed car is now a real posibility but of course ran out of gas sgain

Till next week

Looking amazing John. Body will lift off the drive train cradle once it all done?

Hi Jeff

Yes, that cradle will carry the motor, trans, front suspension,  steering rack and headers down to the merge section as a complete unit meaning it can be raised into the bay or the body lowered onto it

P.S.

I think I’ve found a new way to prep a car for paint, total rust, dirt and paint removal with no consumables, no heat distortion, no metal damage, no fall out clean up and it gets into every visible space

Im making enquirers at the moment

Some movement today

finished up the lower torsion rod mounting points incasing the cavities with pipe sections along with closing off the cradle rails at the rear. Removed the temporary cross brace and now I’m ready to trial mount the motor and box so as to configure the revised gear box mount hopefully next weekend

Cheers

Rear gearbox mount almost done, just need to fix the height position and fab some outriggers to the cradle

lots of room for the twin exhaust and will tuck inside the tunnel

snd of course start of the obligatory smoothing of some weld areas and metal finishing due to my OCD
