Before Schick goes any further, he installs and removes the engine with the headers attached. This is done to check for clearances when mounting the front hoops (arrow A) and diagonal triangles. Once Schick has determined the clearance, he then adds the radiator and its supports (arrow B). The supports allow a forward mounting location for the front hoops (arrow C). Next, he adds smaller tubing--1- to 11/4-inch, .065 gauge--to form triangles for additional strength. Next Schick designs and adds the front suspension.
