any more info on that front end?
Here is a picture passenger side.




and driver side, to much wires in the way need to be cleaned, We also put CNC brakes, to close to the tubing but i think can be moved towards the dash side.







We also put the lexus long studs, and polish the outlaw II wheels, I have four of them the plan is to have at list 4 more, are 15x8 3.75 BS, if somebody have a set for sale let me know.

what length coilovers are those? and what springs are you running?
This is the information from the invoice.

BLK 10" C/O 2-1/2 R/Res
4" 500 LB Spring
18" 3IN 600LBS coils

Does anybody have information of how to install the coil overs, I mean if I use the stock mounting bracket from the lower arm, where should I locate the upper suport, I just want to confirm If I did it right. I took the nitrogene pressure out to cicle the suspension and locate the top support in an agle to clear the frame at full drop and the arm on compression,If there is something like the information to set up the rear suspension leafs?


Thanks

Buen dia.

Some updates.

Bases for the bateries and for the spare tire.



Out of the garage, it runs great, still have some holes in the floor and a lot of things to do, but we will continue with fabrication until Fall, during the summer the plan is work on the body and paint it, install headers and gears with spol.

why do you have that spacer on top of the spindle?

Buenas noches.

My idea was to reinforce this section of the spindle, and have more adjustmen for raid height and down travel in the setting of the coilovers, I have another set of stock spindles just in case my idea dont work.

More updates in a few weeks

Was a long hot summer down here in Mexicali.

I finished the building of my double door garage, cover holes in the floor and start taking some wires out.

Feliz 2013 para todos mis mejores deseos.

A little progress with the body square at the front with a new frame.
A lot of wires out, and the final harness, only ignition, transmission and lights.

I bought 2 doors of the passenger side, but has been very hard to find one roof in a junk yard, there was one on pirate 4x4 for sale but somebody else bought it.

Very nice. I like the fuse box location! And we just moved our intake to roughly that same spot. Should pull much cooler and cleaner air inside.

And what wall thickness is that lower bumper section? You can split larger tubing in half lengthwise to add thickness....or just run this one and it may work for you. Our bumper is out pretty far and low too, and we've beat the living crap out of it every race. We now have a 1.5" od SOLID bar for our lower tube section. It doesnt flex back very far anymore after a race....but weve got some huge gnarly gashes all across it from smacking rocks and what not.

And my passenger says he wants a grab bar too haha

Is 1 1/2" 0.095" wall, I like your idea to add strength, I saw the pictures how your lower bumper ends after the race, so it will help thanks for your advice, Thanks!
