Question....on the kick ups on the rear section of the frame...in the first picture it looks like the right side is set in more than the left side....what is the reason for this... I would have thought they should attatch the same on each side.

You're doing a great job but if you don't mind a little criticism, I've got a concern with the way the rear kick-up is tied into the frame rails. I don't know how to make a circle around the area that I'm concerned with so I hope I can describe what I mean here.

[IMG]

You should have run the kick-up through to the connector and stubbed the cross piece into the sides rather than the way you did it. All of the strain put to the frame is being put on just the side of the tubing cross-member. That is very susceptible to tearing.

I hope you don't mind. Just My 2 Cents.
Walt
