Chassis fabrication project is quickly progressing
The formula for successful chassis fabrication includes proper project management.
Once a vehicle enters the iCanFab shop it is put on a strict schedule of production. To meet these deadlines, resources need to be ordered and a build schedule for all components is created. We do this because our goal is 100% client satisfaction.
1972 CHEVY VEGA UPDATE: The photo below shows the RCI 5-gallon fuel cell has been placed against a rear bulkhead surrounded by 3/4-inch tubing.
Below shows the Aerospace drag race break kit
The FORD 9″ center chunk Aluminum Daytona support and a 1350 U/Joint size.
4.56 rear end gears
The below photo shows the chassis and suspension roof bar that was added. This car will handle 1200 horsepower once finished this additional bar was added for strength.
Having the proper metal fabrication tools are very important when building a chassis and suspension like this. We need to get each stage of the project done within an specific time range if we are going to stay on schedule and within budget. Efficiency in the shop is very important.
Below you will see tubing outriggers from frame rails to main hoop base.
We modified both left and right sides of our S & W full 2×3 frame.
Below additional sill bar has been added for NHRA compliance.

A doghouse was made since this engine was set back over 4″
It looks like this Vega is ready for a firewall.
