Looks good!

If I had access to a welder, I would have done the left side as well. Just didn't feel like doing all the work to trailer it over to a shop.

Looks like my project when I went thru it 2 years ago....good job.

Make sure to weld all around the wevo to get good distribution of load to chassis sheet metal and make sure that you don't put heat into the plastic bushings if you use the sway bar assembly to hold alignment (act as a fixture) when welding in the mounts. You want to make sure they weld in linear alignment or you introduce binding in the sway bar when mounted.

Reundercoat everything and seal it well when finished so no rust forms.
Almost hated doing that because the Wevos look so cool.

See ya

Thanks guys!

Jim, I actually did all this work in my garage. I used a pneumatic cutoff grinder to get everything
off and cleaned up so all the welder needs to do is just show up and weld.

A friend of a friend who builds “World of Outlaw” sprint car tubular chassis is going to do the welding
for me, he has a mobile truck and will just back into my driveway and weld everything up for < $100.

Good deal!

I used a rust preventer, a self etching primer and then Wurth undercoating to try and match the factory as much as possible
