I started by filling in the front portion to give the axle less travel. I planned on running a 19" rim and the tire would hit the cross bar so I eliminated the unneeded travel.
I then slimmed down the plates just a tad.
I put a silly little tail on my motor mount so I mimicked it on the drop out.
Beak welded in. At this time my dad didn't have a whole lot of metal lying around the shop but found the basketball hoop I used to dunk on as a child and cut/welded the pieces of the hoop into my drop outs.
