Build your own CJ7 Frame?

Hi - I have seen some posts about building a CJ7 Frame, but I can't seem to find any posts with specs or a guide to actually do it. I am looking into having a local friend who is an accomplished metalworker build it vs buying one from TDK.

I have a frame to base it off of, but if possible I would like to get specs or anything else out there to see if my friend can do this.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

This has been floating around for a while but your might want to compare the measurements to the frame you already have to make sure it is accurate.
