I have a few drawings, some measurements, but mainly by eye. Ill make the subframes from scratch, the rear will have to wait until I have the gearbox back and joined it to the engine. That's the slightly tricky bit, no one as far as I know has joined a Duratec and a ZF transaxle together. Once that's done, As I have the bodywork, I can line the engine and box on the bottom two rails and work up. The front should be a lot easier.

The Sports 2000 race series use the Ford Duratec engine, sure from memory they also use the ZF style transaxle. If not then they may be able to help...

Are you doing your own tube bending?

The main section is now welded in. Ill start at the front and tie the cage to the sections that will support the front subframes.

I liked how tight you've got the cage, and how nice it looks with the extra bends.   What do you use for tube bending and would you buy the same again?

David, Im happy with with the tube bender, its a "Tubella", or JD squared depending who you buy it off. Not expensive, but once you add the tooling, it can be.
That said, its pretty versatile, and would definately recommend it. Ill put a picture up later.

the rear panel. once this is welded in, I'm going to turn the shell over, and complete the welding underneath. After that, I will start on the front subframe.

Rally stands through the sills?   Threaded inserts for the mother of all roof racks?

This popped up in an email the other day.  Seven figure price...  May as well build your own Smiley

Not a huge amount of activity in the last few days, I still have to earn a living! That said, I had a few hours spare today, so the rear panel is welded in,
can't move any more with that at the moment until Ive picked the gearbox up, Monday, dropped it off to get the bell housing, flywheel,clutch assembly made etc.
At least things are moving. Anyway, I started on the front subframe. I have 95% of the parts for that, and a big pile of CDS tube, so I can get on with it, and Hopefully maybe even get round to fabricating the wishbones etc. So, here's the progress.
