RATS Glass bodys are really lacking in structral support, so I added 1/2" laser cut coldroll 4" wide to the full primenter of the body above the frame rails as a structure to mount the body to the frame ,and cross bars to stiffen up the body and utilize this as a seat mounting , plus it gives the car a very rigid side impact structure, the wiring is routed through the wire channels on each side of the car,and the steel structure serves as a grounding for the electrical,,, the floor will be about 1 1/2 " thick and STIFF,,, origionally we were going to put in a full roll cage but since the car will not be raced, and the room limations, we decided against it

all the dash wiring is plug in , for easy removal or the dash if needed, for access to the elec, and air con unit,, I personally don't like to stand on my head to see under the dash
the console was fabed out of 18 ga. coldroll steel, made with the aid of a oxygen bottle and a leather covered hunk of oak,
