That's a lot of weight on two tabs and some 90° welds to hold up.

Looks like the whole front suspension is tack welded only. It could be pretty cool but needs some re-engineering.

Well, they did say project.  Was thinking this would be an interesting challenge car

It looks like a good buy for the price.  There is a bunch of cool/good parts there.

I'm not an engineer nor did I stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night, but my spidey senses tell me this isn't going to work at least not for long........

.Geometry on the air bags and shocks looks wrong. Too short an arc for the air bags to work properly and the travev for the shocks is too short. needs a total redesign.

The ad says "Rolls and steers."  I don't think anything on that front suspension should ever leave the garage under power.

Maybe if you weld in some spider web gussets underneath?

Yup. If you read the ad, it basically says it rolls, but it needs everything.
