looking good, building the chassis is great, its the best bit i think,

as for welding, i did mine once everything was tacked, one think i would say is don't weld the front frame until you have got your front suspension brackets lined up on the jig, because on mine we had a gap behind the upper bracket so we had to slit the weld and tease the front frame leg out a little

hope this makes sence and good look with your build
