Motor is held up by mounts now. They still need to be braced and boxed, but I wanted to see how much the coils drooped. The bolts are obvious fitment bolts not the final product. Couple of the welds could have been better on the second pass, but I couldn't get them to come out clean.









finished up the engine side mounts and frame side. I think they seem strong enough, whats everyone else think?





motor is a bit taller than the hood I haven't decided what I want to do with that yet.





rad clearance and power steering/trans cooler. should be able to run push/pull with slim lines.

Looking good! I think a long gusset on each side of the frame motor mount would
Be a good idea, given the amount of movement possible I would be a little worries about the longevity of such a short attachment area. Maybe even double gusset, basically extend the frame up and lock in those mounts axle truss style.

Keep up the good work!
