    Forgive me for asking this but why don't you have the sections cnc cut out of plywood if you aren't going to build a traditional trellis out of rod?

    I'm curios to know the reasoning behind your current plan of attack.

    I easily could, but this wire form will do the same thing except a lot cheaper and lighter. I will also be building the chassis within this buck

    Don't know if you are aware but I'd suggest studying Terzo Dallia's wireframes. They are copies of the originals and illustrate how the factory incorporated the frame and flanges, openings, etc.

    This is worth a look too:

    Greg Jones of Stuart FL built two for me in the 80's--one 3 liter and 1 4 liter. Awesome quality.

    As it turns out, I am having a friend of mine that is a carpenter cut all the sections out for a wooden buck for the body.

    Has anyone considered getting a GTO engine made with CNC?

    If you decide to build more than one please PM, I'd be interested in a body/chassis with no powertrain.
