    Dave…  what torsion bars do you suggest? Short, long, MM size?  Also do you use hook & rod stops on the front beam for stops?

    We will build it if it comes.

    Well done Pat just what I described you did it well.. 23MM or 24 Sway away 300M long torsion bars 26 and what ever long get sway away 4130 spring plates for a swing axle to cut down. The IRS plates are a different size and do not come in 4130, they are about the size of the vw irs single plate just thicker.

    Thanks Dave! Thanks Wayne!

    Made a little more progress yesterday. Gusseted trans straps so the ends don’t bend down.9059C95A-CBCA-4FF4-8E64-918FC04C31EA

    Also chopped the pivots off  the rear torsion. 8F8A238A-C9FE-4F76-8A3E-95EE6D7EE4CB

    No on the hook stops pat, On mine I welded a 3/4 x 120  bar that the arm falls on the top stop is pretty involved and that I dont have a picture to show what I did but I tell ya it was SUPER controversial when I first did it and took nearly a year to finally get the ok because I had to take my car to Score at the time take the leefs out and cycle the suspension and they had to determine if it was hitting to much and it was the 1st time I took it there and got the ok the 2nd time we did the whole exercise again. Shock teck has come a long way since the mid 80s and bump is built into the shocks most use todat. Mine just has 2 inch shocks with Nissan Pathfinder bump stops. Trust me its a shit load of work to get it right

    After getting the transmission in the correct way, THANKS DAVE!!!!,  i realized I had no way to get my shift rod in with the pan head conversion. A04CB7FF-157E-49DC-8CB2-77FB5AA155343564F0CF-E1CC-421E-B376-C58DC8B8ACAF08BC498D-450D-46F6-B764-C226865DFC07

    Trimmed the front opening until we were able slide the rod through the guide. Riley fabed a new cover plate. 14B81CE0-E9A6-4181-B827-0B6803B8CEFD

    We slid the body onto the pan and started trimming around tubes. 64A99828-B2E1-4687-B771-3666D52BA7D72AD40EFF-D46F-4ECC-81D5-4B966D8212D05813EEF9-2FDE-47C8-B67D-7B63BAA19B5ECD02F386-2756-4C0B-A46B-8E4839F094F5

    We will build it if it comes.

    For several decades the frame head on your car now would have been a instant Dq as it was a very very large sticking part in the rules. My personal feeling its not the way it should be or be done for 51600 but in reality most wont give it a 2nd look these days. You will need to shorten the stock shift rod if that is what you are going to use Pat, I recomend a pro am shifter as they are very easy to adjust.
