Yeah, I looked at yours and said, "Hey! I can do that!" lol

I had wanted to do it, but wasnt sure how to execute it. Then I saw your build, and liked how you made yours.

Wow, I could have sworn I had an account here... I guess I'm the new guy Sad

Dude, are you going to throw the car from a cliff while you're in it?

That roll cage has more steel in it than the whole car chassis!

Although that's the safe way to go, I guess!

Seat mount "frame" bars IN

Seat mount's figured out (corollas suck for race seats...)

Dash acquired and cut to fit, one bracket fabbed, need a few more

Front Pin mounts done

Rear pin mounts have the hole drilled, and thats it

Dash bar located and welded.

Steering column attachment fabricated. Half attached. Kind of.

A pillar gussets fabricated and installed

Fuel cell cage IN

Trunk floor patched around cell cage

I'm sure im missing something, but there is the gist of things

And a bit more progress...

My Dad has been feverishly working on the brake pedal while I've been working on all sorts of other stuff... He's gotten the balance bar adapter in and welded, and tacked the frame up for me to weld. I'll get some more pics of the assembly when its right prior to paint, and after.

Here is the pedal, ready for paint and finishing, but i was checking clearance for the steering column. Everything was good!

And the reinforcement plate for the firewall, well, at least part of it... I may be running a small tube to the strut tower depending on flex.

Here is the bracket I fabbed for the steering column

Dead pedal

Inside... sprayed with weld thru primer to help keep rust down. I forgot to do this to the steering column bracket. Oops
[Image: AEU86 AE86 - American Rally 86 UPDATE]
Tig welded top. Kinda tall welds... too much rod
[Image: AEU86 AE86 - American Rally 86 UPDATE]

[Image: AEU86 AE86 - American Rally 86 UPDATE]
gotta check the angles out
[Image: AEU86 AE86 - American Rally 86 UPDATE]
Its moved in!
[Image: AEU86 AE86 - American Rally 86 UPDATE]
Solid foundation
[Image: AEU86 AE86 - American Rally 86 UPDATE]
Strong attachment up top

That's pretty much all I did today. I moved a bunch of stuff around so I can finish building the rotissorie to finish the underside of my car. Overkill? probably, but hey, the metal was free.
