damn!  Sounds painful.   How's the healing process going to be like for that?  Are you in a body cast or what?

here are the Xrays showing the damage.  You can see the clavicle break right next to the hardware from the previous surgery. The last Xray has arrows pointing to the 5 broken ribs on my back.

Got the engine and tranny mounted.  clearance cut the firewall for the tranny.  Got body bolted back on.
Next started on the front crossmember.  this was a packaging nightmare,  but got it fitted and looks good.
Then worked on the radiator and shell mount.  takes time to get the design to be strong/easy to use/look clean.
And when your done it looks so simple...
