Nice progress. I have fabrication envy!

Did you fab the front subframe or is that a component part? Seems you would need a jig to built it as well.

BR


The front subframe came from Howe Racing and is the road racing version.

That looks good.

The front clip has a strong NASCAR flavor to it.

I bet you appreciate the jig table. :cheers:

The table is definitely proving to have been well worth all the hard work that went into it! You are also, right about the clip :wink:

This week we also got the rocker panels opened up and prepped to sink the frame rail into.




And here's a profile shot of it.

Today we got the main frame structure fabricated.  Frame rails are 2"x4" 0.120" and the front bar is 1.625" 0.120. 

This front bar will have the firewall directly above it and will radius into the step pan below it.

The jig table works great!

Okay, Erin -- I'll go easy on you here.  Wouldja please go back to the registration ppage and fill in your location in the Profile section?  Otherwise I'll do it for you -- and you'll end ukp in something like a body part (Sore Knees, South Dakota, for instance).  Thanks -- and thanks for the nice build diary you're putting up here.

poserracer's first post was a picture of Mike & Penny Cook with #88 at the Daytona 500 http://www.landracing.com/forum/index.php/topic,13653.msg245388.html#msg245388

Perhaps not a troll?  (That's why introductions are important.)

 Today's progress includes making bungs to mount the step pan/floor plate to the frame, then drilling the holes in the plate.

More progress on the bungs for the step pan. Finished drilling and countersinking the holes in the plate. Rounded the top of the front bungs in the lathe. Welded it all up. Now I have to flip it over and transfer punch the holes for the rear bungs.

Joe, awesome stuff. :-D

You're a grafter and I love the attention to detail.

All the big work is getting set up, drilling, machining for hours and 30 seconds of welding. It sucks. :-)
