    How much fabrication skill you have and what type of equipment you have access to , along with your wallet,would be the deciding factor in that...in my opinion just use the frame conectors. BUT I think I read in another thread that your father has an altered, so something tells me you have access to some guys with some experience at this .

    Actually i thought this was a car site not a bashing site...who cares what he drives as long as he is part of the sport and continues it for his kids and so on..............people have asked me why a pinto and my answer was it was there and if i wanted to be like all the rest i guess i would have built a mustang or a nova or a camero or dart..........that is one think i like about going to the track is to see all the diffrent cars people build for racing.......sure would be boring if there was only 3 diffrent kinda cars....mustangs,novas and darts...............you think

    DONT WANT TO BASH THE GUY BUILDING THE CAR , ITS JUST GOING TO NEED A LOT TO STRENGHTEN THAT THING UP . I HAD A MAVERICK ,TOWERS COLAPSED INTO THE ENGINE, THAT WAS WITH A 200 INLINE SIX. A FOX BODY MUSTANG WOULD BE ALOT EASIER TO WORK WITH. JMO :idea:
