My 4x4 Kit car is commencing
 
Hi just thought i would add some photos of my start to building this roadster

Of course at first the donor car has to have everything removed; heres how i got on.
The suspension and running gear to the rear ending is removed

interesting way of suspending the car. wouldn't want to be under it if the towing eye lets go.

i normally do it through a cross member :D or put the car on its side

I put large peices of wood under it before i went under there lol, The towing eye on the back of this car is very big and if it can tow a car it must be strong, think how hard they get yanked on when you pull away, mind you the front one i wouldn't trust with the engine in. will when the engine is gone lol, That how its leaving, 2 engine cranes then a hiabe on a lorry.

Just as a caveat the eye will be strong in tension, but unlikely to be anywhere near as strong in bending
