Time to build my subframe connectors. $33 in steal and off we go.
Test fit looking good, just need a few adjustment before the first one is done.

Modifying the frame so I can still unbolt my sub frame after the sub frame connectors are welded. The center hole was a factory hole that I add the tub stock to, so the frame side would not deform when tightened.

Really great to see this build. I have GREAT respect for those of you artists that take on these projects. Writing a cheque and bolting parts onto a new car is easy... what you are doing is HARD.
