I got the subframe, front suspension, and brakes installed. I used the Detroit Speed body mounts- very nice pieces.

The upper link tabs were installed. I never figured out an accurate method to measure how straight the axle was before/after the welding. So, in an effort to reverse the warping from mounting the tabs on the top of the axle tube, I welded roughly the same amount of beads on the bottom of the axle, then ground it off. Not very accurate or scientific, but it will hopefully function until I upgrade the rear end.

Finally got it all together and installed.

Once I install the rear brakes, I can get the car on wheels and install the subframe connectors.

The progress in the above posts' took place over the past 5 or 6 months and is up to date with how the car sits now.

Well, yes, I thought I was posting photos. I can see them on my end. Let me work on that.

Thanks for the heads up.

Daniel

*Edit- photos are hopefully working now.

Cool

pictures are there for me. Looks really good! This is pretty much what I'm on scale with, but I don't weld so I'm dependant on my buddy to weld for me when he has time. It's good to see a garage build to keep us regular guys motivated and not feel too overwhelmed

Don't get me wrong- the big pro builds are totally inspirational and beyond awesome.

Maybe they were still loading at the time I posted since the time is pretty close to your posting. I see them now. Nice work.

The rear rotors and calipers are installed.

Got the car down on all four wheels. Measured and confirmed front subframe to body alignment- all looked good and square.

Cut holes in the driver and passenger floor pans and welded the subframe connectors in. I primed the welds but still need to seam seal them.
