Rear Shock And Mount Installed

The rear upper shock mount was pretty easy to build. We used some more of the scrap bits of rectangular tubing from the frame (Ground-Up Part 1) to make these mounts. We then drilled some 1⁄2-inch holes and welded them to the frame to B-pillar rollcage tie-in. It’s a simple and effective way to mount the top of a rear shock—and an idea that we borrowed from Hazel’s orange ’53 DJ-3A.
