11-25-2011 11:02 PM More frame work.....
With the motor mounts built,it was time to fix the frame in front of the x member.It has a nova sub frame,but the left over factory frame behind it was cobbled up to clear some old headers in the past.So I had to undo more work I had done in the past. As you can see,I have learned as much of what not to do on the build, as what to do.

I used some cardboard and hot glue to mock up the motor mounts.When I was happy with the design,I cut the parts from plate steel and welded them up.

Made the rear rails out of 2x3 box tube. Had to make some of the x member from plate steel and box it in from that way.Put the kick up in the rear rails again to re install the ladder bar system again.
