    Ambitious. I hope it rides OK with solid mounted rear. Have you figured out shifter and clutch linkage?
     
  4. Super cool!

    Stupid question though, how do you link up the clutch pedal and gear stick so you can use it sitting I front of the engine?

    Clutch pulls to a linkage arm. And shifter is on my left with a side shift trans so really pretty simple

    Any specifics on the body pan going underneath and how it was attached to the frame?

    Car looks amazing and has gone together insanely fast.
