I am truely a brave man to post these pictures. I know that I will be told what I did wrong. Really I appreciate the criticism so don't hold back. First I'll say that I added a triangular box to the top of the Fatman crossmember. It is welded to the inner boxing plate that we installed. It is 1/4" wall. I felt like it would reduce the frame flexing strengthening the overall design. I am not happy with the strut alignment with reference to the lower control arm pivot bolt but I worked with what I had. This will not be a racer or daily driver and will see infrequent trips out on mostly good roads. We also added a gusset to the strut rod mounting bracket. I am open to suggestions on how to improve this. Here are a few pics .

OK I guess I can only do one at a time.
