My plan is to use blind holes for anything in the frame cause I want to box it in and completely seal it from any oxygen

First off nice work.Can I ask what went into your decision on the location of the front axle center line?It appears that you moved it to the rear and most builds I have seen it moved
forward to better center the tire in the fender opening.

Thanks Mike!
Funny thing is I had seen that people were doing that although well I mocked up the subframe with the engine on it and the wheels Iím going to use which are 22Ē and centering the wheels it was behind the centre line. (Iím guessing because they are pretty big it changes the look of the opening) Plus with the engine in, there isnít much room in the front of it for the rad and fan.

You've definitely got the fabrication side of things down! Nice work. Keep it up and I am looking forward to following this build.

Thanks Flhx06, I really appreciate that!

oh, and Mike Iím glad you bought that up because it reminded me that I wanted to mention that I remember seeing some other cv swaps and people were talking about the angle of the control arm brackets and how to install them. this may have been covered although I just havenít seen it so Iím going to point something out. If you donít want to mount them on a 45 all that has to be done is press the bushing out of the bracket then press it back in where ever you prefer. If you arenít able to, any automotive shop should be able to.
Hope this helps.
