Sorry I have not posted as of late. I moved base of operation to another very supportive friend's yard. At the new location I have not figured out yet how to setup my work bench, vice, a way to drill press just yet. I did get my shifter and cable. Currently saving up for a new Tig welder. I was borrowing the welder I used to build the car with, from a good friend of mine. It was a serious pro level welder, and I'm grateful he let me use it. I need to close up some wiring and evidently one of the pbr brake calipers is locked up. I looked on line for replacements but they don't seem to be the bargain they used to be. If found a rebuild kit for about $60 so will go that route after confirming piston size. I think mine were 44mm but not 100% sure. Here's the shifter

Hey LXnSHO, great question.
There isn't really a sub frame. I used QA1 A-arms with 2005 mustang spindles, pkb brakes, and made the coilovers, mounted to spherical stainless bearings. It was patterned after a mustang k member, but just ended up fabricating the mounts for everything into the tube chassis. The rear end was out of a Grand Marque sedan. It has disk brakes. I swapped out the gears for a set a friend had, 4.11s. It's a tight budget build so I have a spool in it due to cost of a locker. After shortening the rear, I had a set of Strange axles made and drilled. The four link is scratch built using cm tubing and heim ends.
