Made motor mounts and a crossmember for the Caddy today. What a PITA. I mounted the engine about 1" higher than it was originally, and centered better than it was before. I think it was about 5/8" off to the drivers side before.

I used 3/16" steel plate for the engine to bushing plates, and 1.5" sch 40 Pipe for the crossmember. The bushing is the same as what all my suspension bushings are (2" poly with a 9/16" bolt)

The little stubs sticking off the ends of the bushings are welded to the boxed frame. I thought about welding in some flanges on the crossmember so I could drop the pan with out raising the engine, but decided against it for now. Too much to do, too little time, I want to be ready a few weeks before the meet and greet.

When people see a "freak" they almost always stare, but most of them are staring cause they are appalled.

Seeing as how I am one of the few people in the club and on the board who have seen the Freak in person in its current state, I will say that it is even more impressive in person.

Brooks attention to detail is amazing and his theory/application relationship is quite sound and well done.

To bad Brook is such a putz.

Looking good man and if you need me to make the 183 mile trek down for some help just let me know....

Trannys going back together.

Tail shaft is swapped out, and the case is cleaned.

Made some parts for the fuel cell, and have decided on the pickup design.

Im getting closer.

Alright Brook! hardest part is just getting started on that big ol list...

I went through it today and just clicked off the things I know you have done and your not that far off. I think it is doable.
