Getting it welded in place. I'm having trouble with weld contamination so I'll have to grind some of it back out and reweld it back in. I thought I had it clean, but apparently, not enough...

I plug welded the sleeves to the bottom on the outer edge to keep the inside of the sleeve free so any washers/ fasteners can sit flat.

I used a hole saw to cut out holes to add the sleeves inside for cleanliness and support. I keep breaking drill bits in these. I think I've gone through 4 of them already....

welding the support and trial fitting it in the car. The hoop will also help box the upper control arm mounts. I'll add gussets later after I get everything welded in.
