It was a sunny day today and I got a lot done. First, used a grinder to prepare the subframe for welding:


Bare metal is good:


All the cardboard templates have been transferred to steel and cut out and labeled:


Now to mock up the toe and camber plates again, being sure to keep everything level and square:


After a little bending and grinding, the steel reinforcements are complete. These will be essential to keeping the toe and camber plates from shifting under the high loads the car will experience during cornering with race slicks.



Welding will take place another day. To finish up today, I painted some more of the undercarriage with POR-15 after etching with phosphoric acid. This car will have no rust by the time I am done with it - and will stay rust free for years to come.
