    I've never built a MR2 but I'm guessing its going to be very similar to the fiero as far as the chop. Can you post some pics?
    You must do ALL your bracing to the vehicle before anything is cut! I used 1"x2" sq tube for the X-frame under the car. And the same
    1"x2" on the rockers. On the MR2 I don't think there is room for the rocker bracing though. There are a few guys on here that have
    built the MR2 and can answer this better. Some people use tubing in ther interior of the vehicle too. Almost like a roll cage to brace the door openings. this works very well.
