Very neat project. I wish I had the time, space, money, and fabrication skills to do something like that.

Are you using a different water pump than the stock one? Will it be able to push the coolant that far?

If you tied your front frame hoop into the tower brace you would have a full perimeter frame for the front end.

This build is incredible.
