    unless they do weld up frame connectors first--their argument is
    always " its my car/my money, i get to decide what to do" and my reply is
    "then go find someone else to do it, or do it yourself........"
    Yeah.. you can see them on page 3. They run from the back along the pinch seam to the front.. back and front are welded to the slots for the Veripack rail car system and the length along the pinch seam is stitch welded. Click image for larger version

    • nice. i also used 1x1 box tubing with 1/8 wall to tie
      the front of our frame connectors to the rear of the
      subframe/engine cradle, as well as the crazy "bolt
      it through the floor" trans crossmember.
