    Very nice. Is that for more travel or to lower the car as well?
    Looking forward to see the full front set-up.
    Amazing workmanship as usual.
    Please keep the updates coming!

    Below is the fab of a member with a bolted lower section supporting rear torsion bars , exhaust system and with a driveshaft ring.
    The removable bottom is just for exhaust and driveshaft access.

    They're 1.050's and depending on arm length I be around 380-450. Thinking of making the length adjustable.

    Hese an older picture when I were about to make the motor mouths. I use 2 plates bolted upfront on the block and they rest on top of the frame rails . Makes it easy to center the engine and adjust hight adding blocks between rails and plates.

    A time ago I started the time consuming of cleaning up the block. After lots of grinding I realized how messy the garage turned out so I wait for a warmer day to keep grinding outside.

    I know it's geeky :) I just ike it as clean as possible . Grinding cold rolled or heat rolled is ok but cast steel is really something else .

    Working forward with the support for the rear torsion bars . This is for the backend of the bars . There will also be a 45 degree support from the top of the kick-up later on as there's going too be some major loads on the bar tubes .

    Tmfcracing,

    Can you share your technique for getting your welds to looks so smooth? Like where you welded boxing plates in frame?
