Bent up and fit the first of several tubes that will make the rear structure. This one follows the perimeter of the trunk opening. Adding braces up to the main hoop today. The chute anchor will come though the bumper area at 30" off the table so about 20" from the ground when at ride height. It will attach ultimately to the cage, forward of the axle.

Today's progress. Built the chute anchor point. May still add some bracing to it. Trying to keep the space back there open on both sides to accommodate a water tank and a fuel tank as well as a 5" exhaust that will come out the center at the very bottom. I also have in progress the mounts for the chute dual spring launcher chute packs. You can see to difference in chute anchor height from the previous version of the car. MUCH lower this go round.

If you spin with the chute out will the sideways pull be OK?

Neil,  look two photos above the chute pipe.  It looks like it's heavily braced inside the car.

It looks like a long skinny tube to me- OK in tension ( a straight pull from the chute) but what keeps it from bending sideways?

It's braced in all directions really and the part passing out through the bumper is 1.5" x .250" dom. Probably going to add a brace where it curves over the differential up to the bar above it.

Not here. 

I had missed the details in the original pic.  Things looked much better after I went back and looked again, thanks for the post pointing out the triangulated lateral braces just inside the rear of the body.

OK, now I see it. I didn't realize the bracing was on the chute tube. Looks good!

Made some progress on the driveshaft containment and the transmission sliders. Planning on fabbing the driveshaft tunnel from two layers of 16ga steel
