My friend Wallace at Carquest helped me with some research in my quest to find the smallest diameter auto trans flexplate for my electric reverse set up. He came up with the plate from a Dodge Neon at 10'5" or so. It seems to have enough metal in all the right places to drill the VW diff bolt pattern!
Rear body bracing that was removed to create various clearances are being reconfigured and replaced. Lots of welding still to be completed.
Passenger side is done which resulted in adequate tire clearance through the full suspension travel.
Rear mini tubs are going in along the way.
Eventually tubing will be installed through this opening from one side of the body to the other and will be used as a support for the roll cage.
