    That looks like a tricky one to do, nice job.

    Thanks v8nutz. I just hope my engineering is what it should be. it seems like this could be done in few hours or so, but it took me at 4 days to get it all figured out. Measure cut remeasure cut a touch more. Had the other side cut out in less than an hour with a better fit.

    Since that center X is there to prevent twist of the main rails I believe it's plenty stout, Navy. If anyone wants to look, show them the second side as your example!!

    well I decided to do another mod to gain max travel of bars past the intended travel points just for that peace of mind. 1/8 inch is to close so now I'll have 1/2" or better.
    I cut a 3/16" wall tube in half giving me and extra 1" clearance on the bottom end.

    Finished the Passenger side of frame. Came out a bit cleaner looking, nothing beats experience. Maybe trial and error.

    Moving on to next phase of frame reconstruction .

    Due to the Trans location I need to build a new center section for the X member. 1st cuts have been made .


    I will use this 6"dia. .120" wall tube as a starting point for the new section, it will be cut and oval'ed as it comes out the back edge of the frame for driveshaft clearance.

    center section done. I opened up end of the tube by 1.25 inchs giving lots of room for driveshaft travel.

    Nice! And it's the ultimate driveshaft loop, too!!

    Got started on exhaust system, 3rd set of headers installed 1st two sets came out of the box gouged and scratched up, sent them back. Most of this is all going to be welded when done, lots of butt joints to make the turns through the frame.

    Looking good so far. Is that stainless? I kind of enjoy building exhaust with a bare frame, crawling underneath not so much.
