    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. 🙂 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.
