Actually I think it was a good crash. Just needed motor box kit and cowl, that's it.

Drill a hole for the end of the axle to sit in. Then I fiberglass over that block and that entire side of the wheel pant. This makes the wheel pants extremely strong.

Drill a hole into the wood for the axle. Line it up with the axle and epoxy it into place. When installed it will support the outside of the pant making it much stronger.
