Looking forward to watching your build G-Force. I really like the fridge body style...

Once I decided on positioning I started to modify the bottom of the frame so the cv suspension would sit flat on the bottom.
Where the frame comes up for front axle clearance isnít long enough for the subframe so I cut the fram in the front and the rear of the clearance area. I forgot to take pics of the front though lol sorry and the pics arenít the greatest but oh well. I also moved the centre line back an 1Ē1/4

Made a top and side piece to hide them, welded those in, filled in the holes and ground it all flush to try and make it look like it came that way. Hope you like🤞🏻
