Looks good.......
Did you box the frame, or will it be sturdy enough?

Bob, the frame is boxed from the front crossmember to the motor mounts and in the rear where I c'ed the frame for axle clearance. The center of the frame is plenty strong enough to handle the weight and tourque of my build. I'm tearing it down for paint and will post some pics. If anyone wants to know what all parts I used I can list them for you. Radar

Yes Chris but I used it in reconstructive surgery. The orginal setback for the engine is now the hump to clear the bellhousing and the ends are still in the firewall.

great work!

I was looking at the clereance between the front axel and the ubolt nuts. (mine hit). It appears you have a reversed eye spring and a stock cross member? is there a spacer above the spring?
