 Hi Robert, very nice progress so far! Putting the body over the chassis for the first time is quite a dream for most kit car builders!  ::beers I suggest that you may want to add some extra tubing just in case. I quickly drew some lines where I think it's most likely to strengthen the chassis. Yellow lines represent larger size main tubes, and white lines are thinner reinforcements. You can add some triangulation in the central tunnel, too. As a side effect, this will also help you shift some weight to the front axle.

 Cheers,

 Bobi

 Trust me, 400 lbs springs is the minimum for such kind of a car. I would use anything between 400 and 600 lbs. During a sudden stop or high speed cornering over 90% of the car's mass will immediately transfer to the front end, thus the front/rear weight ratio will play quite a small role.

How did you determine the spring rate for your front suspension?  400# seems a tad stiff.  Of course, probably no two cars will have the same frt/rr weight ratio but I figure mine will be close to 40/60.  Here is a website to figure the spring rates if you care to give it a try.

Thanks guys! Yes they are QA1, I used 250# for the rear, and 400# for the front.

Robert, great work! What rating coil overs did you use on front and rear...they look like QA1's (450lb front, and 2x250lb rears, standard 10" compressed)
