    Front motor plate

    When installing a front motor plate in a stock chassis does it matter if you weld your mounts from the frame on the inside of the frame or can you weld them on the outside of the frame?

    Doesn't matter. Just make sure you make the mount big enough so it's not hard to get to the bolts. Some cars/ trucks have so much room it makes no difference, but some can be tight and a pain to get to and work around.

    Agree with DD.

    I always leave a "step" cut in the front plate and mid plate. I drop the assembly on the frame and the plates hold it while I put the bolts in.
    Very easy...
