Keeping the engine cool! just a mockup it will fit much better when we are done

Trunk minus the wheel well... I plan on adding a depression for the fuel cell back here and a spot for the battery also.
You should also be able to notice the spots I added a little to support the body where the bolts go through to hold on the AWD rear subframe

Good clean work, and I don't give that prop often. Good luck on the project, it looks like it will be well done. As for the radiator though, that looks problematic. It seems to be too tall. I wouldn't want mine to hang down under the car and be the first thing that gets hit when I go over something too high.

The only part that really goes bellow the support are the mounting pins that stick down the rest is actually flush with the bottom of the support... although I do plan on eventually making a piece that goes under the radiator for better protection

Post Re: ProjectMX - BP swap and AWD Swap
So we got a ton done last weekend! most importantly I figured out why the engine wouldn't fit in and fixed it, now it fits perfectly in the engine bay. Here is a link to most of the pics from the weekend more will be up later today:

And here are a few pics:

What was the reason behind modifying the front subframe?

the AWD trans is way bigger so you need to make space. or you could try and find an AWD front subframe
