    They look like they hang down a lot lower than they do. It is pretty close to the same level as the engine crossmember/oil pan. If it bottoms that hard, we have bigger issues.

    And if they do ever get damaged, i'll just make new ones :)

    Yeah once the bumper is on I do not think they will show much if any....

    Been awhile since the last update...and I see that most/all of my previous photos are being held hostage by photobucket...so I'll link to this site which cataloged the pics and build.


    Anyway, some big progress, got the chassis and body stripped of all the trim, hardware, seals, etc, and had my buddy dustless blast the body. It's rougher than expected, but it's now in good hands of one of the best body guys in the area.

    Prepping for blasting



    Dustless Blasting




    Went over my welds under the car, as well as added chain links for wiring harness routing.



    All clean and dry, waiting for the wrecker to show up.


    On the rollback headed to the body shop

    The body shop is making some headway on the mini tubs and trunk floor sheetmetal.



    Adding some strength back to the core support and cleaning up the sharp edge where it had to be trimmed for charge pipe routing.

    Just curious, how do the chain links work, did you bend them, and the harness will lay in them with a zip tie going under the link and over the harness securing it?
