    Those parts we're 7075. We're a small group of independent designers, makers, and tinkerers in a small community in N. Idaho. Hopefully if we can keep things rolling, we'll be able to come together under one roof. Until then it's all being done at private residences.

    Removable front cross member coming together. Might need some persuasion for removal...

    you mentioned that the space was for a group of makers, are you working this project by yourself or with a team?

    We have a team of neighbors basically. Matt and I are home office CAD jockeys and own a few 3d printers. My neighbor Jeff owns the garage where the car is being built and is doing the majority of the tube cutting and welding. Tyler is a family friend of Jeff's that lives close by with a Haas mill and is doing most of the machining. I'm very fortunate to have moved into a community with a lot of talent and a client crazy enough to fund a build like this. Goal is to have the car complete for Lost in the 50's in Sandpoint next spring.

    Does the sway bar run through that tube at the front? I think that's what I'm seeing...

    Correct. Once we get closer to finding the final vehicle weight, we can order the correct rate bars.
