With no frame of reference for scale, the pic of the floorpan section cutout could just as easily be the front crossmember jack plate.

It spans from the rearmost point of the stock shifter location to the portion of the floor that steps up for the rear seat.

Oh, yeah. I was just joking that a giant piece of metal on the ground looks just like a little one. The actual hole it left is huge.

Ohh haha, sorry the joke was lost thru text.

Fought with the seat bases today. Broke my only spot weld bit, so I resorted to a normal 3/8" bit. Uncovered a bit of rust, but there's not a whole lot of floor left to rust.

I didn't like how the tunnel was going to look with it ending at the shifter hole, and I wanted to tie the transmission mount, frame rails, driveshaft loop, and the tunnel into the cage.

No update on the car because I'm on school break for the week, but the case of my hubs has been resolved. FedEx denied all 3 claims, even after providing suffcient evidence that the box was packed correctly and the load rating of the box exceeded the weight of the items by over 20 pounds. All of this and they still wouldn't refund a mere $200 for hubs. That's the last time I'll be doing business through them. The seller was gracious enough to issue me a full refund for the parts.

how you make roller without hubs? :_sure:
I have the hubs/knuckles. The wheel bearing is garbage on the passenger side and the backing plates wont allow me to bolt up calipers. They make good mockup/rollers though.

So you got reimbursed fully by the seller for the knuckles because of some bent backing plates and you kept them?

Yep, destroyed backing plates, wheel bearing destroyed, and the studs are all beat up at the tips. The only usable thing I got were the knuckles for mock up.

With all that, sounds like they tossed the package off a building.
They might as well have. Fed Ex swears up and down the box was handled with utmost care. They clearly didn't, because the seller sent me pictures of the box/items prior to shipping.

Spent the day tacking in the top base plates and bending the main hoop. Really happy with how it came out, having never done one before.

Notching the a pillar tube was a chore. The tube is angled on three different axis's so it took a mix of the angle grinder and my notcher to get the right fit. In going to browse YouTube to see if I can find more techniques for notching these wierder angles.
