I like how you could rotate the strut tops to adjust camber/caster! dude you're doing awesome this looks sick.

Thanks. I'm actually hoping to cut caster angle for easier manual steering

Got the roof bars in and rear strut upper mounts drawn up in my head. The strut is super close to the crossmember pipe. Worse case I make a little dent in pipe to clear strut for travel.

Looking great man. As I've been teaching myself to tig this really peaks my interest.

When thinking of how to shape the front end at least consider moving the rad to the back. Without the "protection" of a stock style bumper and grill it might be a little safer, all while hiding the real intent... Because it would make that motor stand out more.

Badass. Keep it up.

turns out the bushing is slightly unadvertised oversized. The 1.375" OD bushing is actually 1.382" OD found that info here
