Chris Alston's G connectors

I am FINALLY at the point of re-assembly for my 79. I was going to make my own frame ties, then stumbled onto this....

https://www.cachassisworks.com/p-160...-subframe.aspx

I am thinking this would be a nice platform to build my cage off of. What do you guys think?

Thanks in advance.

nice piece but I would like to see one installed and what about ground clearance, exhaust routing, you still need solid body bushings.
For that money you could have our roll bar and sub-frame connectors.

if you are going to build a cage you are better off installing "cut in" frame connectors anyway, going up will be more beneficial.

I'm going to be doing a roll bar with dog legs off the front subframe to the inner rockers. If I were to install the Alston kit, it would be welded in anyway. Here's a link to my build thread and you can see where I'm at and what I'm thinking........

http://www.nastyz28.com/forum/showthread.php?t=166828

This is gonna be a street legal drag car with an 8 point cage. I suspect I will be able to run mid 6's in the 1/8 when all is said and done. I'm hoping I can get on this thing so I will actually be able to drive it this spring.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
