How's progress?
I think I will post some miscellaneous ramblings here. They are tangentially related to your thread, because of fabrication matters, and because I am also trying to fit a Honda engine where it doesn't belong.

I wish they made these things with flat machined sides. I do have a table saw for this, but it is not close by, considering over $4 gallon for gas.

I've made these down pipes for my GTV6. I used Milano for sizing. It is ready to be tacked into place.

get some zip ties.. wrap it a round the pipe.. tighten it.. get a sharpy, trace it around the zip tie. remove zip tie, or just slid it up the tube and cut around the sharpy line you jast made...easy

Thanks for checking in. I’ve had some pretty demanding work and family priorities lately that have pushed this to the back burner but fortunately I think I’m just about wrapped on those and can start getting back after this.
Thanks, as always, for weighing in on the fun fabrication work that we’re all enjoying :)

As much as I want to make polyurethane mounts again, I think I’ll be grateful to have off-the-shelf solutions if/when stuff needs replaced down the road.

Landed on Jeep motor and transmission mounts from Energy Suspension.

the tranny tunnel will sooo, much fun to make..just finished mine... as for the sterring,,if are going to use the same system as mine... grade 8 bolts... you will need to drill the steering box are and idea box arm to 5/8 inch... unless you want to go tp 16 or 17 mm bolts... the ich sizes are just easier to get.. you also will need 12 safety washers, and 1 peice stainless steel spacers 5.8 id. x 1 1/8 od. x what ever leanght you might need.. i think i posted my system on my build... also heat the steering arms red hot to bend.. if you just put the bolt in you will notice that they will hit the lower, inner A arms
