Thanks a bunch. I used a Volkswagen MK3 Golf VR6 rack. I wanted to stick with BMW, but theirs are nearly all front-steer and I wanted to keep the rack behind the wheels. There's a post deep in this thread about it- but here's an easy link to it in my blog:Great build!! very nice detailed writeup what type “compact and low steering rack”
Did you use?
what tools did you do to achieve these curves? I'm not much of a metal worker but am preparing for this stage soon.
Yeah that was my buddy Tyler’s brilliance. It was a combination of a Rotary machine, stretcher/shrinker, and hammer and dolly work. I’ll look for some photos of that work. The tools are inexpensive but using them is another matter, so I stayed out of it personallywhat tools did you do to achieve these curves?

Ditto. Plus it will give you some thinking and tinkering time. Electric cars won't be a thing of the past in 6 months.My take, time goes so fast that if it really does end up being just 6-12 months I'd park it and wait. If you think it may end up being three to four years, do a quickie.
