I've placed the engine inside the frame so I can line it properly.
This will alow me to create the engine mounts left and right from the engineblock. Note that I do this "old-school" to prove that you don't need cutting edge lazers or nano-inch tools to pull this of correctly...
Third pic is no longer correct: It was brought to my attention that I should level the base of my manifold,NOT my valvecovers!
Thanks for this info
To place the grille insert onto the frame I've made a slot-system.
On either side of the radiator I've welded a strip,these strips fit exactly in the two slots witch are located left and right inside of the grille insert.
the left-side is ready. Flatened it out a bit on top. I've also made extra room for the grill insert between the rails. This way the grill insert sits free from the frame rails. Last picture shows a pair of coil overs I plan to use in the back. Originaly intended for Beetles and buggys but they work as well in the back of my car. Nice detail is that these come at one third of the price you pay for a "normal" set of hot rod coil overs!
I've bend my frame rails inwards so that they sit just beside
the grill insert.I dont like the shape of them so I will reshape them a bit. Not shure yet if I will close the holes at the end of the rails or that I will use these gaps to locate the indicators...
