Progress Update 2/2

A quick progress update:

Things are moving along about as quickly as I could hope for.  I finished welding the engine mounts, steering mounts, diffuser mounts, and steering tubes today, and so the engine is ready to be dropped in.  This will happen on Saturday.
The frame as it sits (upside down).  Diffuser mounts, steering column, and engine mounts are the new additions
A couple more pictures after the jump

The engine mounts

How to hold a frame upside-down so that it doesn't fall off the stand: zip-ties.
