No doubt you've already discussed an engine for this car but I don't recall. So what are you planning on running in it? Btw, the SOT subs look great, nice welding job.

Looks really good. I see your using the weld in brackets for the longer lower links and are also spacing them in. Planning on running minitubs? If so what companies?

Engine is going to be a 331 Roller block with Trick flow heads 4bbl Holley..Not to sure about the rest but its going to be good handling driver with Street or Track full suspension..

I was going to go with MTF mini tubs but with all the time I have now I decided to make my own. Also you need a portion of the inner tub to weld to and I don’t have that so I made them wider to mate to the outer tub I also used a bit heavier steel. Have a buddy that has a laser at work so I made a pattern and he cut them out at work and I tig welded the pieces together. I also had to make the flange and still have to cut out and make the step to place the seat latch on the right side. I placed them in as far as I could so not to have to alter the interior.. Happy with it so far..

Looks great! If you make a run of say 20 sets and price them reasonably, they will be gone!!!...we will have another Zray success story for one of our own! I thought with other mini tub kits you cut and sectioned an area of the rail more inboard? Your rails look unaltered..so how big a wheel and backspacing with what size tire were you planing? Kudos to you on your build, all aspects of that car are top notch...

Its is right up against the frame in the back..and as I said I did not want to get into the interior so that tub is right up against the fiberglass side panel..Measure yours front back top middle and let me know as I don‘t have anything to go by but its much wider especially in the front..I though about having him cut out a few extras but I didn’t have enough material to do it and tig welding them together takes time..I bet I have almost a good day in them..

Nice very nice. I've been eyeballing the MTF mini tubs as I don't want to mess with the interior. Guessing that with the SOT 3 link your going for the lower arm brackets at 40" on center?
