I am going to be using the same style adjustable coil over as the front suspension and a triangulated four link set up. I wont be using any air ride on this truck just going to get a super low stance with the coil overs.

Starting to make patterns for the firewall - got to decide if I like the layout before I bead roll some designs in it.

It is designed with small reliefs so you can bend it over and have a perfect joint to weld so I guess in a way it is one piece but you still have to weld all the sides.

Sorry I thought you were asking about the Mustang II crossmember.

The firewall is made with a total of 5 pieces. I had to do it this way because my bead roller only has an 18" throat on it. I wanted to make as one piece but then I would have had to leave everything smooth and not roll any designs or strength into the pieces.
