Thanks. For whatever reason I had ordered four 5/8 rod ends and assumed that two of the them went up front. Oh well, I guess a bit of extra beef in that area can't hurt. :oops:

Good progress today!

I tacked in the other outer suspension bracket, and made up the inner brackets.

I also got a long piece of all-thread to help align the inner brackets for welding. I still need to make a filler piece for the top as the inner brackets are about 1/2" inboard of the diagonal tube.

Also after a lot of googling and comparing photos I learned that the S2 Elise tank that I am using fits a 2000-2005 Toyota Celica fuel pump module. There just so happened to be a 2001 in the local junkyard, so I snagged the pump. It is the exact depth of the Elise tank.

Oddly a few of the studs don't align properly with the retainer ring. I think the toyota part has slightly eccentric holes so that it can only mount one way.

A bit of dremel action should solve that.
