A few more pics of the opening rim.

The last pic shows how I'd like to finish the top of the rim.

11-23-2012 05:11 PM ENGINE COMPARTMENT RIM
I needed to stiffen up the front metal so I made up a trim to weld around the opening.

I started with a brake formed angle using a nice radius die followed by some shrinking and stretching.

10-27-2012 06:26 AM REPAIR ROUGH GROUND
I got the repair area rough ground and planished a bit. There are alot of spots that need stertching and others that need shrinking. The patch helped but not as much as I thought it would.

02-05-2012 04:15 PM MOTOR MOUNT ISSUES

I had the car on the hoist to try and get the steering hooked up to be able to move the car in and out of the garage.

I couldn't get the steering working smoothly with the universal joints req'd to go around the motor mounts so I decided to go right thru it.

I cut into the mount to check the req'd clearance so I could design new ones.

Second pic shows old mount beside the new underslung mounts.

Third pic shows finished mounts.
