Very cool project. I'd love to do something similar with a Willys Aero when time and funds allow.

I'm not putting a cage in it, so it needs to turn as well.... which is better accomplished by a triangulated 4 link rather then the 4 link with panhard. Also, it drives and rides better.

thanks.... now to just convince you that you need a Spider
