Gilbert......you are right......but,the drawing that Kurt gave me has a completely different custom chassis and that mount is close to what I needed ......so I used it for the trans. and radius rod mounts.....it still needs some modifying......and the motor mounts up front are different as well,and need to be scratch made......thanks for your input.

Man, I don't know how you can seem to build so quickly and still turn out such fantastic work. I can't seem to do either. : )

Your in progress work is in my eye the best part of the build.
Lots of detail work that will be hidden with body panels and paint.
Thanks John for including the body work stage.
