    This first frame design was supporting the motor from underneath. I will do another version from supporting the motor from on top and see which one I like better.

      I would suggest to go top attachment - more force is applied this direction in terms of road waves, Also it is cleaner to service the car this way - you can disconnect and pullout the whole subframe with motor if needed.

      Another part to keep in mind is - where you are placing batteries - if you are using engine bay then having frame part between motor and battery pack to support both is a good idea.

      Also keep in mind acceleration and stopping force applied in parallel to the car, Tesla subframe is designed (as I see from the photo) to apply it to the frame in front, question where it would go in your design. Two options: straight (in terms of force spread) frame part or rods to the front main frame - same as accord/prelude have.

        I redesigned the frame. I received my batteries. Now I need to figure out where to put them.

                        haha, started those bastards.
                        Question - on video while sorting geometry of front frame vs door, hood is not sitting right or it is twisted?

                        My hood was twisted a bit - half an inch wasn't enough to have perfect fit between frame/door/hood, so I had to fix it in paintshop with filler.

                          Yes, rivnuts are soooo much better. Thanks for the advice! Keep it coming

                            Yes, I feel that my hood is a taco shape. I feel it needs to be flattened to be a little wider. I am realizing that I will need a great deal of fiberglass and filler to get the fits that I would like to have
