 We will be adding another section to the lenco and I would end up with too short of a driveshaft I think. Will be mocking up the rear end soon.

 Looks like the engine could be set back closer to the firewall. We set ours back as far as we could and still pull the heads straight off the studs.

  We also ran bars from bottom to top on cross tubes like yours behind firewall and mounted to engine plate with 3- 5/8 bolts on each side thru upright bars with steel tubing welded inside for bolts to pass through.

  More weight on rear tires grin

If you look at where the front spark plug sits in relation to the upper control arm mounts, you will see that the engine actually does have setback compared to the OEM position. It just looks like it sits forward because the factory firewall (that we cut out) protrudes so far forward. This new firewall sits further back.

More cage progress today. I also jigged up the rear end and hung the water pump the other day.

Thanks man. Starting to look like a chassis. We are looking into wheels at the moment so we can proceed with building suspension and making tubs.

 Using nascar front hubs but we may end up with a custom hub to help with getting rid of scrub.

Mocked up the axle with the wheels we have. We will be ordering some plate wheels with positive offset. The pic shows 3" of rear ride height with less height achievable.

 Made a little progress today fitting the nose. We are still waiting on rear wheels so that has had me held up for a while. Should have them soon and we can finalize the suspension mounts in the rear and the seat location.

Just noticed all the pic links died..  anyway here is the album link to see all of them
  https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.486569108119655.1073741841.411780185598548&type=1&l=49167d543d

 I recently have made some more progress. We got new front and rear wheels. The rears needed more offset to tuck the the tires as far as we needed to go and the fronts have as much offset as we could get with the goal of zero scrub or as close to it as we can get.
  I mostly made progress with the rear suspension these last few weeks. The following are the latest pics.

I bought some pretty nice 4 link brackets. They are meant for 21" center arms so I fabbed those from 1.5" x .250" DOM using 5/8" x 3/4" aurora rod ends. Hope to have coilovers soon.
