Just finished getting the bottom pieces of the crossmember cut to length and slid together (no permanent welding yet), and the LCA centerlines set up to match the partial jig. I now have to unhook most of the front suspension and steering to unbolt the steel crossmember from the car so I can use it to finish the jig to locate the steering rack and the attachment flanges that match up to the bottom side of the frame. The 4" x 6" aluminum plates at 3 and 9 o'clock in the picture show the rough placement in space of the flanges. The steel crossmember is roughly 35#, and my present tally of expected material in the new crossmember is in the 23# range, but I anticipate probably adding a couple pounds in extra reinforcing material in some places, just to help me worry a bit less while on the track.
