Looking good Joe! Nice work!

 More tube work



This shot shows all the tubes that intersect above the drivers head. I will be adding more triangulation all over the place too.

Not sure yet. We have a set of fairly big wilwood four piston calipers for the rear. Probably something similar up front.

A little progress on bridging the dash area to the windshield and a few more bars in the cage. Waiting on parts to fab the front suspension.
