    How many hours have you been swinging on that welder?

                we carry on - but I'll reaffirm my utter hatred of trolls.... I do this for fun - if it's not fun, then I'm not going to make a hobby of it

                    Everybody hates trolls, especially trolls. I could give you some psychological mumbo-jumbo about projection and whatnot, but really, just know they're full of self-hate and loathing. I'm sure a guy like you who gets more projects done in a year than most of us do in a lifetime really triggers them. Regardless of what you do with this, keep up the good work, I always look forward to seeing your problem solving skills in action.

                      I'm glad I'm not the only one that just can't leave something alone when I'm in the area. You have me beat in both motivation and project creepitus disease (My wife says it's a mental disorder).

                      The the stiffeners in my WRX would lift a wheel or two off the ground just pulling into a parking lot, at least with AWD I didn't get stuck :-)

                        The SBG projects are always first for me, nevermind I likely can't get in your vette or 40...

                          today started with deciding I'm not using this (still).... it's an aftermarket, bolt-in cross member but I think the stock, welded cross member is stronger

                          So I did what was naturally the next step, I cut out more of the frame (so the purists will cry, I guess)
                          just for the record, this isn't a discussion - this is what I'm doing, like it, hate it.... don't care.



                          as I cut it apart, nothing popped out of shape - which is good, considering how pretzelled this frame is


                          and just like that, 40# lighter



                          now to figure out how to put the upper shock mount back... no... how much floor I'm willing to cut out to put the shock in the right place


                          isn't there anymore.

                            today's fun, motor mount
                            the problem, passenger side is low

                            CAD assisted design

                            now in metal

                            I need to do the front side now.

                            Then onto the passenger side. I started here because the mount was pretty floppy with all the metal removed, now it isn't so I can move back to leveling the motor in the chassis (once I'm finished with the driver's side)
                            How do you account for slopes in the concrete and differences in jack stands?

                              No gripe from me! Now if you'd just put in a BBB or something interesting!
