Yup. It's the mount bearing on the dash bar.

The rear doors are still functional and open from the outside. The inner door skins and all internals except the door latch are removed on the rear doors.

The front doors have the glass and regulators removed and are completely scraped clean of any undercoating. I left the front inner door skins in place though. Inner door handles on the front remain in place. There are pics of the scraped and lightened doors earlier in this thread (See Page 9).

I think that's the steering shaft Bearing - it's a rad end bolted to the front cage Cross bar.

I wandered over to New Albany last night and pestered Adam. He continues to plug away on ToadRacer.

Gauges are mounted. We are using the original wiper switch (yes, it is not currently oriented in the original position :roll: )

Flyin' Brian sent us a very nice convex mirror that will make racing in a pack of 80+ other crazies much less nerve wracking.

Adam welded in some good tie down points for trailer towing.

I did my usual mox nix stuff not worth mentioning.

We had another productive workday on ToadRacer Sunday.

I didn’t get photos of everything. Adam mounted the fuel pump and filters, reworked the firewall bearing for the steering column, started planning wiring for gauges and switches.

We got an LED third brake light and adjustable seat back brace.

That geometry looks a bit off kilter.

Yes, I am worried when it is sitting at ride ht that the angles will be very bad. Call (best) or email me if want to consult, no texts.

I think that they will bend or break when subjected to lemons' shenanigans for hours on end.

Looks like that Sway bar needs to be torched up to bright red and possibly bent in towards the CenterLine of the chassis.
