i 'm going to dismantle (or break) the car, modeling the parts, put everything in the chassis to see if it fit well

looking good that. what thickness plate are you going to use? i would think the top one needs to be substantially thicker with a tapered hole for the ball joint to seat into.

Looks much like I have done/planning to do. Check position of top upright link relative to the Ford one to make sure suspention geomitry is right. Also, as Ash points out, thicken up the top plate of upright.

was also thinking it may be worth putting the top bolt through from the inside to out then welding the bolt to the plate and having the nut on the outside. that way you could then box it in and have a small access hole for the bottom bolt.

bonus is that it wouldn't add much weight and it would make it a lot stronger.
