as with anything, it's my opinion based upon my experience... YMMV

since I have some enforced time off.... might as well make the best of it but working on this
First some radiator support brackets


weld in place then give it a good cool downedited because I'm done after this




then work a few minutes (again, cool down time) on the rear cage/support



then start on this tie-together... I think I'm going to have a problem and have to shorten the driveshaft... ugh oh well.edited If I leave it this length, I'm pretty sure it'll never come back out without pulling the motor....edited

the other benefit of this brace is I can build the belly pan and have a good attachment point


my big, hairy, audacious goal is paint the car at the end of these 2 weeks....edited

time to make it level.... and drag out the stands

then weld it yesterday's part and this into place




this creates the floor for the cargo area and also allows me to run cross braces that tie through it to the frame

tire stripping earlier today

easy


time to weld the cross brace together


and remove this inner wall


removed

I think the braces will look like this then cut the middle out so I can put the battery in the battery box (that will be behind the chassis brace)


I need another bracket solution... think the alternator is going to move to the other side
