    I have pulled the dummy power train out along with the cradle I plan on sitting the real engine & transmissions into it when it has come back from repairs & Paint @ Greg Van Zelst's. I still have some welding & gussets to fit 1st.

    I had to find 2 rims for the front. With the right neg offset. A friend had 2 that worked out giving me 10mm clearence with out spacers. tyres are a bit small for what i want

    [​IMG]

    due to cutting floor & footwell back for tyre clearance. I had to move jack points this left a gap to fill. I decided to use 100mm x 50mm x 3m wall thickness A lot stronger than stock

    this should do the job

    boxing the rails under the cargo floor. for peace of mind that it replaces what i cut out along with the cradle supports. I used 35 mm X 100 mm cut length wise It is a hammer fit into rails. I then used some clamps to pull it into shape it has 4 bends in it length.

    cut ready to clean up edges the hammer in [​IMG]

    I have to pressure clean inner rails then weld it up. i have rust inhibitor to pump into the cavity when its finished
