    Its really close To been parallel. I measured it with using cross laser

    Little More work, driver side upper airbag mount did not fit and had to do 2" notch to the floor. Then i realised that the fuel tank is super close to the airbag and gonna measure today if i have to move the tank 2" to the back. Also noticed that the fuel tank has somekind of o ring connection and gonna change that to normal clamp connector

    Today My friend came and welded the whole 4 link etc. I noticed that My front shock mounts where In the wrong place and have to cut them out and weld those back tomorrow with redesigned place. I did not have enough up travel In the shock when car was In driving height. My own fault, measured wrong.

    Gonna post video when the chassis is all ok and bags working etc

    Seems like too many times lately trying to move my project forward, I run into unseen issues, and have to back up 2 steps and try another path. And then it's a compromise, but sometimes it's a better idea than originally planned. Like trying to stay under a 50% scrap rate running brake, tranny, and fuel lines.

    My friend came over today and soldered the rear body panel gaps. Previous owner used bondo In those so i grinded that of and we used lead solder for those.

    Also had to move My rear shock upper holes to different location because they hit the upper 4 link arms when car is lowered to max.

    Tomorrow maybe tha fuel tank brackets relocation and the floor is starting to be ready
