Back at it, chipping away whenever I can. Today I was able to get the transmission crossmember made.

01-13-2019 05:15 PM front leaf spring mount fabrication
This weekend I made the front mounts for my suspension. I figure I'll need the car sitting where it should before I can accurately determine the engine angle and fab up the trans mount. It'll be a few weeks before I can get back to it.

01-06-2019 08:49 PM engine mounts 2
Not much progress this weekend as it rained here and my car is outside, so I made a mess inside my garage cutting some brackets for the engine mounts. I was able to weld a few of them on the car this afternoon. Still have a bit of welding to do when the engine is back out and it'll be easier to reach, and hopefully make the trans mount next weekend.

01-01-2019 11:19 PM engine mounts 1
I also worked on making engine mounts for this, and I have them started. I had some unused Hinson brand urethane mounts for my GTO I decided to use here instead. I still need to do more welding and add gussets for strength, but the general idea is here. Hopefully I can finish these up over the weekend and make the trans mount, too. Then I can complete the firewall and revised trans tunnel. I plan to make the trans tunnel removable for access. I have some nutzerts which should work well here.

01-01-2019 11:17 PM engine mock up 1
Today I worked on mocking up the engine in its new location. I have the engine up s high and as far back as I can reasonably go, and still have room for a brake master cylinder and hydroboost unit. The exhaust clears, and I'll route the steering column linkage as needed.
