    I'm patiently awaiting my tube to show up so I can build the rear coilover mounts, it was supposed to be in on friday.....still not in. Once that shows up this thing should really start flowing.

    Broke out the pressure washer sandblaster yesterday....









    Then I decided I hated what it looked like.....sooooo I cut everything off.



    Made new coilover mounts:





    Then on to the pedal assembly,
    This...



    to this...



    to this...



    Oh and best find of the week, these zip disks are by far the best I've ever used. 7" costs only $4.14 at Raider. They cut FAST!!! and last a long ass time. Great value.

    7" discs or 7 for 4.14$

    looks what happens when you build tools your project never sees the road.

    No, when you build tools, your work gets exponentially better, and faster getting you on the road sooner.

    Pedals hung....



    New plan for the crap I cut off:

    Every time you post, I'm always amazed at what you're doing.

    Would there be any benefit in boxing the top of the strut mounts?

    Yes for sure, there will also be a removable tube that goes over the engine after its back in there which will tie both mounts together.
