lol. The pan will have no halves, the tunnel shorten six inches, narrowed six inches in the rear, raised torsion housing three inches (trans raised one). Front beam narrowed six inches as well (two inch dropped spindles). It's not a kit car nor will it be used for a bug body. You'll have to keep coming back to check my progress!

That was my next guess but then I noticed he said "it will be a driver" and I ruled it out as thats a racer.

In this photo its only butted up to the tunnel (not squared yet) so when its done it will have the same gussets on the top as it does on the bottom!!

And not a Vee.

Bolted the front beam on so I could square it up to the front suspension.

When I get the trans back I'll get the pan rolling, bring the car to work and remove the front and rear suspension and start fitting the pan. I have it all done in my head but I'll have to see how it goes when I have the car.
