Well its day 4 already. Junior has already been back to his man cave to finish welding the engine mounts and blend them in.

As previously mentioned the front cross member had to be cut off so to allow the front to be fitted. A new cross member fabricated out of 65mm box section  and welded in. Attached to the new member we welded in brackets for the suspension trailing arms (not sure what they are called)…see below.

Next it was time to fabricate the gearbox rear mount, pictures as below.

Time to mock up the final position of the body, this took the rest of the day. Supported with hundreds of clamps and tyres(anything we could find)
