    I figured I’d jump on the lower rear shock mounts next since I’m gonna have the welder under there to tack the spring pads in place.

    From CAD template, to pieces, to “this is how it will fit”

    Nice.

    Idea...What about welding a captive nut to the tube between it and the shock? It seems it would make removing the shock bolt and nut a little easier.

    Just an idea.

    Howard, you made me laugh with your post. Non-the-less you forget, both Willys MB and the Ford GPW have an offset radiator although not to the degree of ITLKSEZ has. :lol:

    That radiator doesn't look like your new aluminum one. Is that just a stand-in so your new one doesn't get all dinged up?

    Could the big slot in the template be for a belt to power your AC compressor on-board air?

    Yes, that’s the stock Honda stand-in. I’ve done enough damage to the aluminum one.

    The York compressor will run backwards and the alternator will run forward, with their pulleys nearly face-to-face. The big opening in the plate is for the belts.

    I’m off to the steel shop for a big chunk of 1/4” plate.
