The front is actually almost done. If you consider I didn't work on it for a day and a half this week and we've done nothing today except work out some solutions with Robert, we are way ahead of schedule.

Two more photo requests please
1. Front of the axle so we can see the bridge work.
2. Upper control arm frame bracket.

When you have time of course.

sweeet jackstands. I'm guessing that is a custom upgrade to make them taller.

Thanks for th extra photos Mr.Blaine.
Are the arms you are using the TBT arms you posted earlier? They look like steel arms instead of aluminium arms. Just curious.

Those are just some scrap DOM 1.5" .120 wall tubing we are using for mock-up with some tube inserts we bought from PolyPerformance.

After it's dialed in, we'll cut the aluminum TBT arms down and get them threaded for the final arms in the front.
