Looks great ZZ.... I've been thinking about connecting my engine mounts someway simlilar to what you have done. I have my spring cross member at the front end and then nothing until the trans cross member and it's bolted and not that heavy duty.

Whatda think?

Never a bad idea especially considering the weight of the lump sitting between the frame rails.

Your welding is better looking than mine too ZZ! I used the magic grinder and flat black paint to make mine disappear in the shadows!
Ha,ha, my welding is probably no better than yours, I too have a magic grinder to eliminate the boogers and f-ups which I use before taking pics..

Exactly what I was thinking about the twistyness of the front of the frame. The big block in mine is heavy and torquey (hopefully), so why wing it? I'll also be having tube connectors from the frame thru the firewall to a cage which should make it more rigid in case I get some air under the tires

Before going back to Arizona I felt the need to do another mock up of that 871 goodness to haunt my dreams 'till April

Put on the front sheet metal for the first time to size it up. Fenders and grille shell are pretty beat up but it's just metal that can be fixed... I may mount the headlights about where they are sitting, the stock pedestals put them up about 4". Headers are a no go, made for 567 Chevy, I'll have to chop them up to get under the fenders.. apparently no one makes fenderwell headers for a BBC in a 37 Packard

Where the scoop sits just peeking above the grille shell looks perfect! This car is going to have just the right attitude!

When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when Iím gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

The more I learn about women, the more I like my car.

Don't give up, it's far too much fun once you can drive it.
