  • Body mounts welded to stainless steel Avanti frame

    Just finished this recently:

    *Drilling the two rear body mounts to match the roll bar.

    *Drilling the two side body mounts to secure the floor pan at the front seats.

    *Fabricated the two body mounts at the firewall.

    *Shimmed all the body mounts to the floor pan.

    *Bolted all the body mounts to the roll bar, floor pan, and firewall.

    After checking all the mounts for squareness to frame and being level, tacking them to the frame.

    We then removed the body from the frame, and prepped the frame for TIG welding the body mounts.

    Assembled the side pipes, and installed the silicon grommets for noise and heat isolation.
