    That was a lot of work to clean and fab. Burned the seam sealer out so that welding will go smooth, then sprayed silver lacquer on the backsides to protect.

    Welded in nice. Left some open spots to help shed moisture. Grinding and tube fitment next.

    Looks as though it is coming along quite nicely.

    Another day, another plate. This one reinforces the control arm/rack mount. A tube will just barely fit outside the pedal arm.

    Thanks! Loving it. I have used all my energy today. Tight inside and simple through the glass. Thinking about storage and access the whole time too.

    More tubes. I have to do the passenger side longitudinal and door bar still…but this is pretty much the design, no A pillars or halo for comfort and access.(but we can always add them later)

    The whole chassis has been reinforced for off road racing/jumping/crashing. πŸ™‚ Front suspension, to torsion housing, to strut towers, to motor mounts.

    Cole made templates for all the gussets yesterday too.

    On to the passenger side.

    Cleaning the smuggler/battery box out. Rusty under the seam sealer. Chemically treated and mig welded the longitudinal tube mounting plate.

    This is the hardest tube to bend and fit. I made a mock-up piece out of conduit to get everything perfect, and use as a guide.
