I cut up the frame sleeves and by the time I left last night they were tacked in and the skid was temporarily mounted.
We added a couple of stiffeners to the back of the skid plate and we have a few more to add. Jesse is going to get a hoop made for the under the oil pan skid that will connect to the main skid.
Plan is to work Sunday and get the car buttoned up for the ECORRS Harlan race on the 16th.
Don't go light on the stiffeners........mine's bent to shit even with 1x1 1/8 wall angle iron bracing it.
