Space frame

This is a bit of a work in progress so I will post the progress whenever time permits. The main goal is to make an authentic tube frame chassis/space frame which will facilitate a mid engine layout instead of the usual Beetle pan mid engine style layout which, lets be honest, doesn′t make for the best looking car and let′s not even mention the handling!

I have just finished modeling all the critical components which will allow me to accurately lay out the frame in the computer. My goal is to be have the frame laser cut, welded and powder coated by one of my suppliers, all from the computer drawings.

This new system mounts the front bumper to the More…
