I've been going back and forth with the design of the front end for the past 2 weeks. I am now confident with what I have come up with so work has begun.
I was trying to design a way of mounting the engine that is strong enough but not over done and heavy. It's not just the engine but the whole front end needs triangulation that ties back into the roll cage because I have removed so much metal.

Speaking of removing metal, the front came off yesterday

I am not 100% sure how I am going to cap off the frame rails yet so I had to use a hole saw to cut the lower part out so I could mount the steering rack at the correct height.

I've ordered some polyurethane bushings for mounting the engine and gearbox, they are not very large so should be very stiff but take the edge off the vibrations.
I did think about solid mounting it all but I don't really want everything vibrating undone all the time and this way I still have the option of replacing the poly with nylon if I decide I want it solid at a later date.
