To keep the center of gravity low, I presume?

Mostly to keep it as a sports car and not a Sherman tank!

Got most of the left side ready for welding. Cut the right side to match but have to fit it tomorrow. Need to get this welded up before it gets below freezing. I'm already pushing it with welding in the 40's.

Been looking at my design for the Coyote. I was going to run the radiator up front but I got to thinking; this car isn't going to be raced, no SCCA, no land speed records; just a nice driver. So I think I'll just put the radiator behind the seats and the gas tank behind that. It'll save me routing 20 feet of coolant tubing and keeping things simpler. And if I want to change it, I can.
Heading out to weld...

IRS cups tacked in. Bolting up the arms tomorrow to mock stuff out. Need to make some fake shocks to hold the ride height.

Got the chassis in the shop somehow, under the Coyote frame and on jackstands. Bolted in the springplates (no bars for now) and got the arms on. Actually found the right socket for the lugnuts and got the wheels on. Need to get my temp fake shocks on to set the ride height. Have to clean the shop as I'm going to have sparks flying soon!:wel der:
