          There will be few 100 hours of drafting and scanning before I turn any spanners. My friend designed and built a plasma tube notcher and he has a macro written that outputs the code straight from Solidworks.

          So my plan is to commit to wheels, set up suspension geometry, draw chassis space frame with engine and transaxle in it then start to fit the other junk into it.

          Someone asked about hard cover I'm going to leave tray open and have the radiator and oil coolers in the back, I'm just not sure how to duct that at the moment.

            Is there a packaging reason for reworking the suspension geometry? I'd be inclined to leave it as per OEM given how well those things work.

                The 1200 is 1500mm wide and the GTR is about 1900, I'll model it because originally I really wanted to keep standard subframes but then it all got out of hand and I kept thinking bigger and bigger.

                Another idea I thought was get it running with standard frames and then later on design custom frames if I didn't like it. I need to check on the strut layout as that could be a problem if it is too far out for 1200 bodywork.

                To be honest I just wanted to do it custom because sometimes 10 hours on a bit of design up front could save a heap of packaging issues later. Not to mention I can shrink up the width 200mm so it is only 100mm out the guards.

                  I'd widebody the ute, but the way some of the mustang guys do it - ie maintain the turret width (no custom glass), but basically add a flat on the belt line to add width.
                  Like so:



                  Preston's Mustang body is now 4" wider so the flares are less rediculous (It's still 6" wider than stock or something.) I've seen one done with otherwise stock arches - it's hard to pick initially what's going on.

                    So you just need 200mm wide flares and some rivets then. Easy!

                    I'll put this in the 'build threads I'll follow and largely not understand but love anyway' box.

                      LOL just for perspective, Datsun 1200 ute 1500 wide, R35 GTR about 1900, my 1988 F1 rear end 1260mm......

                      As I've discovered it is all about packaging. Fitting all of that R35 into a 1200 shaped package is going to be a challenge. Being capable of doing it all virtually is going to be a real luxury.

                        Be about as wide as an R31 by the time I've finished (from 1440 - 1700 wide)

                            That is an insanely awesome plan and something tells me your not a bench racer. Prove me right!
