I really thought this part was going to be harder.
Taking the angle grinder to the car, cutting the frame.
But really, I see it and smile.
Huge huge huge thank you to both John and Mike for helping me out with all of this recently, there is absolutely no way I could have done any of this without you guys. I owe you lots of beer. Felix too, he’s cute.
All solid coloured sections are parts that need to be notched. I have a bunch of photos for people that want to do this swap in what I believe is the correct way. Push the motor more inboard, huge amount of clearance for the steering rack, much lower center of gravity, much better weight distribution and a proper delta angle from the output shaft of the transmission and the flange of the differential. I’m sitting near parallel currently.
Just a quick update for now, more to follow.
Thank you to anyone reading this blog as well. As of this point, I’m at well over 4000 page views. It’s great to see such an interest in this project and it encourages me to continue pounding it out! Share the blog around to your friends if you think they would be interested! 🙂
