S13 – Tube Crossmember

Tonight i set aside a few hours to start on the tube crossmember on the PS13, heres what happened!

You may have seen the Jig i made a while ago, the jig isnt really needed but if you plan on doing a few then its worth its weight in gold, makes life so much easier.

The main inspiration was to get the motor in so i could make the headers, i cant make the headers until the crossmembers done so it had to happen fast.

Its all just tacked up at this stage and i need to brace it a little more but its getting there.

Everythings adjustable and everythings super light, im almost at that stage i want to rework the entire engine bay, i did those tubs and tin work like 5 years ago and learnt a lot since.
