  • CORE SUPPORT MOD WRITE-UP

    I will be making a new core support. This one will be going into my bpt car. I thought it would be nice to have a very detailed write-up on how to do the mod. I am making the models now in cad. I am going to make a drawing of each part that is needed. I will edit this thread once i have everything completed.

    So far i have


    core support mod front of car


    core support mod side of car


    core support mod section view (as if car was cut in half front to back)


    core support mod iso view showing all items


    core support mod iso view with plates taken out of picture to show how the bar fits around the plates.


    I plane to make the plates and weld them on then make the bar. I will bolt the sway bay to the frame and then set the support bar onto the sway bar brackets. I will mark the hole location and then drill them out. I will then bolt it all together. I will then bolt the cross member to the body and put a block holding it up into place and mark the holes on the support bar to be drilled. remove bar, drill holes, and then reinstall everything with bolts. I want to avoid welding the bolts into the bar to aid in future use if i every need to fix or replace it will be easier then having welded in bolts. does this method sound about right? anyway i hope to tackle the support mod very soon and will edit this post to have the entire instruction all in one place.

      The holes are not in the proper locations. I will have to measure the car to get actual locations!

          On the latest one I did, the plates extend up to include the bumper mounting holes. I did this because the bumper is also used to strengthen the front end. This ties the structure into the bumper better.
          It's a great idea to outline this better. Thanks Mike!

          Driving for me is neither a right nor a privilege. Driving is my passion, as it was for the people who invented the automobile, the people who paved the first roads and the people who continue to improve the automobile. Please respect this passion.

              PLEASE NOTE: The location of the holes in my models and drawings are not actual locations as of right now. I have to measure it and adjust them. The hole sizes are good tho. I think i used 7/16-18unc bolts to bolt mine together.
