What did you add the short tube sections to the carrier xmember for?

Thanks for sharing all these, I don't think I've even seen a step by step like this. Fascinating to watch!

Sorry...no pics for this post. Lot of progress but wasnít gonna bore everyone with pics of pretty much just welds and fish plates... Have the frame cut off from the jig and turned over finished welding the underside of the frame. Do have all the fishplates welded on and, the wishbone mount in. Link mounts have been cut off the rear end and, the lowers have moved from where they were and welded back on.
Working also on a new front crossmember that will gain some more room to drop the motor just a little lower because Iím a little concerned about hood clearance.
Does look awesome laying flat on the shop floor though even though the rear axle isnít under it at the moment. Will do a photo update in a few days when the rear axle is back under it.

Fully welded and laying flat... business is getting ready to pick up. Ignore the temporary brace across the notch. Have it sitting on some ride height block gauges so now can get started setting the link bars, pinion angle, etc.
