      Very nice! That looks like it came out great! How did you build the towers and how tall are they? And the supports are aluminum I'm assuming for weight?

      And OT, but do you work for a transmission rebuilder? Looks like one of the transmission holding fixtures I used back when I worked at a trans. shop.

      Thanks man. I finished this part of the project a while back but I believe the towers were about 4". My hope is that the aluminum supports will be lighter. I am a little concerned that the threads I cut inside them might not hold but we'll see. If there is any issues I can fab some steel supports without too much trouble.

      I own an import shop www.germanautoltd.com. That fixture is actually used for a strut holding tool.

      Here are some more pics just for fun.

      Enough for what? I'm curious because I haven't actually installed on the car yet.

      Edit: I see yours hit the fuel tank. I'm assuming that's what you are referring to? Not an issue for me as we are running a fuel cell.
