Cracking on! Exhaust manifold is looking good and the engine mounts are great - I'm going to try something similar on the gearbox side on mine. Have a few questions you have probably got it covered, but I'll pipe up whilst you're still in fabrication stage. Why did you decide to use captive nuts on the bottom arm mounts? And have you got room to put the bolts in from the back when the frame is on the car? I think it's pretty tight and would be a shame to make bottom arm bush replacement a subframe out job. Also have you put the hubs on to check you have enough suspension travel. If you fit top & bottom arms and connect the hubs I think you may find the bottom arms hit the frame before the top arm hits the droop stops. You may be ok, but I spotted this problem on mine whilst mocking up.
