One of these days I will send you out your clutch. It just needs to be put in a box and shipping label put on.

Looking at the exact same lincoln powering 210mp. Sweet little machine - let us know how it works!

Also, would love to see more detail picks around the front control arm area. I know salvagewon makes their own upper control arms, correct? I think they maintain the frame rails and weld up new brackets... irk, interested in seeing how you work it.

Also, any detailed intro about how the a pillar of the cage is secured to the car? Seems like its kinda floating out there, all shear?

Keep bringing the nasty!

They retain the oem arms - everything designed around keeping the drivetrain oem (if you want).

I got some more goodies come in yesterday!
TSE's new bbk - the pictured ring are my 2yr old spares.





And so my small workshop has been crammed with these big *** freezers i work on that's chewing up my workspace and hindering my ability to work on the cars. So I'm expanding parking area for my trailers and to also be able to put a 20 or 40' storage container close to the back of the shop so i can get the crap out of my shop. It's a mess now, so as soon as I get my septic in, I'll bring in a box start getting my shop to what out used to be - nice and roomy to work on cars!

Thanks for that response. You're totally right, stock drivetrain if you want.

I meant to say, don't you remove/reinforce the front strut towers and mounting plate?

Also, due to dropping all the weight on the car, what manufacturer for shocks/struts are you going with, and what spring rates? I saw Koni earlier...

Reinforce with plates you do! And the forward bar from the cage is welded to it as well.
I'm running a 450/250 GC/Koni setup. I'll re-verify that though - might be 500/300.

Awesome, thanks for double checking. Any plans for roll bars and the such?

Enjoying this build. I am in the middle of selling my Miata interior parts, piece by piece. The sawzall goodness will start this summer.

Take pictures of the cut areas please. Preferably with a measuring device attached, so the Eliminator-wrenchers that come after you have some references!

No measurements per the rules! They'll come with the kit when/if you buy one - sorry chief!















Gonna have to weld in a plate here. This donor was hit pretty good on the pass side, it'll be Frankenstein cool, but Robert will make it work.

Sorry I'm just now getting back on this - but, the guys been INSANELY busy with a new job while moving! Hopefully the dust will settle very soon and Eliminators being produced! I'll guarantee that, if he hasn't gotten back in touch with you yet, he will soon!

And so I see the Doc next Monday - for real, I need something! The beer is pleasant and all, but the only thing I'm getting ahead in is my weight!

I had a buddy come in and lay down some paint - it's a nice dark blood red with metallic flake











I didn't get it done, but paid someone to do it. I just drank beer and watched
