    Two inch square tube, open front of rear frame rail and back of front and slide tube in both ends. You will have to trim rear foot wells for the tubing going forward. Then weld ends and the floor were it buts to the tubing.

    Here's a pic of my subframe connectors, taken a couple years ago before I changed mufflers. As Oldiron said, slots cut in the rear footwells and the floor welded to the connectors. They don't intrude on the inside of the car far enough to be noticeable. The carpet pretty well hides them.

    Amazing work so far, Boncky!

    I see you have a 318ci (5.2L) 2-bbl. There is a lot of room for improvement.
    The question is how much money do you want to spend and how much power are you looking for?
    This might be a better topic in a different section (like say in the engine section).
