#036 Interior-Finishing it Up Thread

If you were wondering what happened to my original build thread, I had my website HACKED to shit in February and the douchebag hit the delete button on the entire site. Lost everthing cause I was a dumbass and didn't back it up.

Anyways, here's where it was last Friday. I'll keep this thread updated till she's done.

Here's the final inboard spring mount. Under neath the box is the original hanger with a triangle of plate up against the frame like this |> and then the plate around it to box it in. Poison Spyder Gussets to keep it from seperating like Hobies did.



From the back corner




Wilwood Master Assembly:



Still fussin' with the placement of the assembly a little and the steering wheel. But should have it set now.



Encapsulating the motor for the firewall. Subfloor is down. Just have to finish up the rear CV cage. The inside is going to be all Aluminum.

One more


Front axle is missing cause it's being made at FROR. Diamond with custom shaft and Elocker Mod. 60.6 for the width up front.

More in the morning. Working non stop till it's done...

you prolly know this but.....make sure your clutch and bell housing is covered as best you can. and are you sure you have 3" above your helmet to the chassis?

and btw, you wont have problems with the hanger. the reason that one hanger came apart, was because it wasnt welded on all 3 sides, just 2

Yeah, I was playing around with that piece of AL and trying to get as much clearance for the slave as possible. Might have to recut it though.

I do have 3" above and when I set the chassis in February it was higher than that and Heywood said it was "too tall" so I dropped it down to 2.25 inches above the frame rail and with my bucket, should be ample clearance for the 3"
I'll slouch if I have to

By the size of the boulder you were moving with your axle, thought the extra gussets were called for...learned a ton from you guys in 2 days

Thanks John, yes, it's moved back 8 inches and used Mike's engine mounts.

Update:


Switch panel is in...this was a chore. Made 2 brackets/mounting systems last night and sent both to the scrap pile after 3 hours of work and started from scratch again and came up with this. I like it. Sturdy as hell, clean and effective. Most important, no need to bend the trans shifter to clear it now. My tolerance is about 1/2 inch when in first gear to the fuse box.







Next 2 nights will be paint and will have an update on Friday morning as the plumbing and wiring will be the weekends chore

Update...

1.75 .120 wall Dom to match the chassis. Wanted some overhead protection and strength to the rear spreaders should I ever put the rear seat in. All tacked in place. Have one spreader just a hair off and will fix that tonight.










Lowered a bar on the engine cage and re-ran the spreaders.









Clean it all up and plan to start painting everything then reassemble it. Should be a good weekend.

More Monday
