Cut the pedal section out of the forester. This makes things much easier. But then ran out of wire

That's an extremely clever way to go about mounting the pedals.

It'll be welded in between 3/4" pipe andshould actually be stiffer than the angle frame version. I was having a hard time welding the forester sheet metal. it was too thin, would burn away before i got any penetration into the angle

Gotcha. Subaru sheet metal sucks to weld to for sure.
