i started to strip the paint off the shell because i want to repaint it

the old paint has been on the car since Sept 2013

 

i figure with changing the drivetrain out to automatic, i should repaint it as well

 

 

I'm not sure if I'm going to keep it the same almond white color or paint it o.d. green

 

 

but I have a ton of time to figure it out

I can only work on this car when my hips don't hurt to much, which is all the time

drove out to San Diego for this show, it was 425 miles each way

23565947388_8566323024_z.jpgright side subframe by joaquinn lopez, on Flickr

 

I had to start over with my subframe because the automatic gearbox is so much bigger then the manual

I had to move the engine out 2 inches so that the gearbox would clear the steering rack and the upper control arm mount on the suspension tower

and I didn't want to build custom upper control arms

i'll be fine because I have a clubby front clip

 

I ended up using 1.25 seamless tube to build my subframe

 

I still need to brace it up

37410338992_b5f0232202_z.jpgautomatic motor by joaquinn lopez, on Flickr

 

 

bent some 1.25 inch dom tube for the left side of the subframe

 

I just need to make the center crossover tube

but I ran out of tube today so I need to go and buy somemore tomorrow

 

metal place is closed on sundays

 

and I plan to use 3 inch triangles 3/16 thick to brace up everything on the subframe

 

I should have the subframe done this week and pull the engine from it and pull the subframe from the car

to do finally welding and paint it black

 

I still need to make the tie rod mounts but that wont take to much time

but I need to get the car on its wheels before I can make those

Thanks for posting this, you're the first one I've seen put a Honda D series in a Mini with an Auto trans. I was wondering whether it could be made to fit as I drive an auto also 2009 Clubman S - due to age and bad knees in my case. My current classic is a stick, but I'm planning a project with an Ecoboost 3 cyl, with an auto trans.

 

I was at the MMW in Sandy Eggo too, wonder if we talked there?
