Very good. A mate is bagging his finny ute (obviously not standard!) but he was able to retain all the stock control arms. But I am not sure he gets as low as your car though. The standard front control arms have a habit of snapping near the kingpin though if not lubed so that can be a problem he will have to be wary of.
If you can put the front crossmember on the ground, where are you going to route your exhaust?
And what are those things in the boot (sorry, trunk) that seem to be poking through the floor? Are they some sort of mega-valve? I have not seen anything like that. Will there be a big tank in between them?
Your project is confusing me... I have a 1965 220S that I was going to part out but can't bring myself to. It has a terrible paint job but a nice red interior. It looks like a grandpa car and I was just going to get it running and sell it. But seeing your car looking really cool makes me want to do something similar to it. But I have too many projects already!! What a dilemma.
