The cage looks awesome! Thanks for getting those touches done Pat. The car should be bomb proof. It’s not going to fold in half, twist, or pound a strut through the body. If it does get crashed, it should only do localized damage now. More repairable in the future.Pat KKeymasterAugust 24, 2020 at 11:11 amPost count: 1427
Well this rig is missing Franz almost as much as I am… 😎 Hope your back soon!!! Pat did some battery box mounting last week…
Me too, 😘🙏, get well soon Franz!
And I did work up a batt mount, after I fit the front strut tower vertical supports and the cross brace to tie them together down low.
Per Franz, batt tray modified for stock or Odyssey batt. Batt mount ready to weld in after cage is welded.
Made a jig to get the batt tray mount in the sweet spot.
Base and top mods done.
We will build it if it comes.ColeBModeratorAugust 26, 2020 at 11:58 amPost count: 1662
Fits great! Will be nice just in case we have to grab some Mongolian tractor battery…;)John JonesKeymasterAugust 26, 2020 at 5:00 pmPost count: 6731FranzKeymasterAugust 27, 2020 at 9:36 amPost count: 3639
See how it pushes the Spare tire all the way toward the passenger side? Makes the cubby hole(2nd battery) inaccessible.ColeBModeratorAugust 27, 2020 at 9:50 amPost count: 1662
Maybe a good spot for rarely needed items? Some parts or spares that we will hopefully not need. We will have to come up with somethingJohn JonesKeymasterAugust 28, 2020 at 8:56 amPost count: 6731

What about going with the 1968 London to Sydney 911 look? More rack = more fun?FranzKeymasterAugust 29, 2020 at 6:42 amPost count: 3639
That’s ugly as sin. I guess you don’t use the front trunk then?
This Tuthill car has a cool rally jack stands that plug into the stock jack points. I found a place that sells all the stuff to fit them. Even the hydraulic jack. 20mm should be close to fitting the stock jack holes.John JonesKeymasterAugust 30, 2020 at 8:12 amPost count: 6731
Wow that Porsche with the exo skeleton!,,, ugly!!!!!!!🧐🧐🧐🧐🧐🧐🧐🧐🧐🧐🧐🧐🧐🧐ColeBModeratorAugust 31, 2020 at 9:41 amPost count: 1662
Do you worry we might smash a jack point and then the stands are useless? I guess this isn’t nearly rough like Baja, so we should be fine.ColeBModeratorAugust 31, 2020 at 6:54 pmPost count: 1662
I pulled the gear stacks apart. Ordered new bearings, brake bands and synchros. The limited slip diff is on its way tooJohn JonesKeymasterSeptember 1, 2020 at 7:38 amPost count: 6731
