jesus....this stepped up a notch!

one question though, with all the fab work with the rear cage, how come you didnt think to go with that for the front suspension and engine mounting instead of using the original chassis legs? would that not have saved alot more weight?

or is this in the interest of having some weight over the front wheels for traction?

We're still not sure what's happening up front yet , next time at my mates who is doing most the fab work it's going to have the front crossmember taken out and a new custom one made so we might cut the chassis legs back a bit as the drivers side mount it coming off too and a new one made and tbh spaceframing the rear was a impulse job one night when boarded and the plasma cutter was there , so same might happen to the front yet
