I know, right?! Quadvan does put in quite a bit of additional formed parts to add some strength but I think the better route is to not cut as much. I don't even cut the back of the cross member with my suspension parts and the front doesn't need nearly that much trim. I'm adding in some reinforcement for the trac bar mount in my design but that's it.
Thank you!! The pop top is still in the design phase. I just got the 3D scanned models of the van sorted out. I'll have something to show soon though. Now that I have good profiles and cross sections to work with, I can get the top members fit really well to the van...in CAD at least.You do some seriously nice work!:victory:
Hows the pop top prototyp'ing doing? Any pics of it that ya can share?
This is a replacement tank. I have similar plans for batteries and other stuff along the side of the frame.Maybe I missed it, but is this replacing the old fuel tank or supplementing it?
My future plans included rear underfloor storage and house battery storage etc. BUT I would much rather do a 55 gallon tank out back, and mount larger house batteries under the middle of the chassis.
Looking good either way!
