    Looking better all the time !!!
    How far is it from the top of the rear coil to the brace that comes down from the roll bar ? That looks like it could be a possible weak spot.
    To all who contribute to this board.
    My sincere thanks , Pete.

    I'm talking about the tubular frame work. It looks like the tube could bend where the coil connects to it upon heavy impact in rough use. Maybe a brace from the coil bracket up to the tubeing that runs to the roll bar would make it a little stiffer ??

    haha yea believe me, seeing that burnt brown rust color was getting old. And im sure a few burnout/jumping videos will be in the mix soon

    Today I assembled the 4 link, rear coilovers, front coilovers, 90% of the steering, master cylinder/brake pedal, control arms, fuel cell, and did some more work on the motor.
