^You generally slope the X down towards the front to make it easier to get in and out of the car.

Terry they're pretty close to mine/fia spec. They would be plenty strong in that configuration.

Ya i been looking at that too Biran. The front corners and length of the bed are two areas i might revise.

It was originally like that to clear radiator and the intercooler pipe going into the reversed manifold. I might flip thea mani back around and use a short radiator

I havent changed it yet though cuz i think once rad, intercooler and lights are on, it'll look better

I'm not sure what you're running for body panels but you could extend the nose out at a 45 angle to your current down tubes to create a more streamlined nose and then build your crash beam and front off of that?

going for bare minimum body. like a firewall, a floor, maybe some sheetmetal behind seats, and removable fenders. hood is still a grey area. getting mixed feedback on its requirement

In regards to the door bars. Could you go more of a nascar style with them being parallel. Kinda like below. Just curious if there are any reasons why that wouldn't work.



Cheers, Luke

Almost rolls. I eff'd up the trans mount. Bolt spacing off again! Went and got more jack stands so I can level up the chassis and make sure the roof bars are correct. Bed cam out to 49" deep x 40 1/4" wide. Just being enough for a pallet
