That support is excellent.
I would galvanize it to prevent the steel aluminum galvanic corrosion.

Thanks Robert - for now it will stay raw as I have some more fab work to do. I want to keep it so it is easily removable and will have items added onto it like speakers for lower seat belt reel mounts.

The tub will eventually be Line-X'd - and with the supports on the inside I will just have them powder coated. FYI - The supports underneath attached to the chassis are galvy'd and heavily smeared with anti-seaze on contact points.

Made a couple of plates for the M10 bolts going to the lower cage bracket. The frame cross material is a little thin as many of you know.

View of the P&P rear cage lower brackets where it attaches to the rear cross member.

Galvanized and tons of anti-sieze. Had to make a 1x1 spacer up top.

Plate and M10 bolts I got from Fastenal. They are more corrosion resistant than galvanizing and are 10.9 grade. Expensive but worth it for the application.

Thanks Galpin, RoverDoc and Lostchord! Getting closer and closer to the stage 1 finish line where I will actually be able to take it for a drive.

This week I messed with making a catch can for the OM617.

I had some scrap stainless around so just threw it together. 3 @ 1/4" NPT bungs were added - one from the valve cover, one from the air intake and one to dump back into the oil pan.

Was able to back it out of the garage today.

Lots of little things to do but felt real good to be able to move it and get a test run down the street.

Nope - it's the secondary driveway / pump & mini bike track.

You can't tell from the pic but it's resting on a 2 ft tall roller up front. I have a log from a tree I cut down that I am going to add at some point.
