Good, creative thinking.

I do however think it may require some serious revamping (or new fabrication) of the wheel house brace bar which appears to have its effectiveness (in anchoring the suspension and shock mounts) diminished by your modification.

Do you have something already in mind to keep the suspension anchor points well located, or am I not reading your photos correctly?

How much of the wheelhouse (inner fenders) are you intending to remove?

Confused


It may be possible to use the engine as the mount for the suspension. Formula 1 and Indy cars have done this successfully.
