Hello fellas, I was a little bit down with this project because of the engine seating too high, I was talking to my friend Henry and we start talking about this project, and I did mentioned to him that I was thinking on start the chassis all over, so he advised me to just modify the upper bars and bring them down to a better position for the engine, so when I got a chance I decided to do that, came out better then I thought so now my engine seat a lot better and now I can continue with this chassis for the project, thanks Henry...

hope you guys like, any advice pls let me know

Love the build so far. Where you are gluing the PE parts to the chassis and also when you had to make adjustments to the chassis where the engine mounts, are you using epoxy? 

Thanks man, glad you like it so far, sorry about the info, need to get use to this new setup on the forum, I pull this pictures so I can show what I did, but the engine mount from the chassis am still working on those because of how small they are, after I have them complete I will make and update on that, still need to do a lot on this chassis.

in the fist picture is how much I have to bring down the upper bars 

min the second picture are the PE I need to move to make this modification accurate as possible

Marcos, mid project "adjustments" like this are always a pain, and when creating a new design pretty much a matter of course, even on the full size cars. But the results are always worth the extra work.  Your doing a great job.

Thanks Ian, yes I thought start all over will make a better job at the end, but wanted to continue with this chassis, what a dilema right LOL, but going forward will take more measurements on my fabrication

I am glad you kept on going with the current chassis. Cant wait to see the next steps you achieve with this build during fabrication.

Thanks man, I was distracted with the Dodge, now I have to wait to some parts to get dry, so Camaro time LOL

Little update on this bad boy, work on engine mounts and some small brackets before shouting some primer, install the door hinges and they work fine, hope you guys like it
