Will the tabs attach to a crossmember? Nice solution to the adjuster.

I just happened to start with making these parts first, but yes there will be folded channel crossmember between these tabs and also a gusset at the rear part of the brackets to the frame.
I wiil tack everything for now and then finish up the welding when all the fab work is done, including the IRS etc etc.
I hope this isnt getting boring for you guys?
Thanks for the kind words and interest, its helps to keep me going fprward......

John

John,

I think it is safe to say that anyone that finds your post "boring" probably wouldn't be spending much time on this site anyway.

I really enjoy posts like yours where people decide to take a risk and try something new. It keeps the motivation and imagination going for those of us that don't have the background, skill, tools, etc. to do the same thing, Hopefully it drives us to keep trying things outside our skill/comfort level (while still keeping safety in mind).

Keep up the great work and keep posting.

So its been a while since i have had a chance to progress much, but i now have the lower rear crossmember tacked together and ready for a trial fit. What do you think guys, should be strong enough? John

You are doing some damn fine work
I'm not considering doing a swap like this - However, I like to see people step out and do the new thing - Especially someome that has your fab and imagineering skills - It is like watching an artist at work.

You are doing some fine work there...with your fabrication talents you could have built this IFS from scratch. Progress pics are great...still anxious to see how it all comes together, I am sure that it will be a masterpiece!
