    That is some top-notch fabrication you're doing there. I wish I was that good. I reckon the ride height would look better if it had a slightly higher front end, but with the back alot higher, so it had that mean hotrod stance to it, but you are probably decided on ride height and all that anyway, and I doubt the high back would suit the car to be honest. Keep updates flowing! Great build.

    some specs for chassis.
    main rails were 100x50x3mm .quite large for a small car but needed to be that big to hide stuff later in the build.
    rest of the chassis ranged from 1mm to 3mm wall thickness depending on what it was doing.

    mounting rear diff.this is out off a sierra.
    also put holes in rear crossmember for exhausts to go through and started prop loops
