    The CMM data I had taken in 2014 didn't include the positions of the bolt holes that attach the "snubber" to the crossmember. It turns out that gizmo needs to move as well.

    The snubber is #15 here:

    However, it actually installs with the rubber toward the back of the car instead of pointing up.

            Lol...
            It's one of the things that defines where the engine ends up; I figured I should have it on my crossmember.

                On the RWD the stopper keeps the engine from hitting the radiator when the engine mounts are old. They are also NLA on RWD.

                    Sometimes... The iX bumper crosses to some RWD applications.

                      Progress, based on snubber mounting measurements:

                          AAAAAAAND of course I realize basically as soon as I post the above image that I need to change it before the rack or mount towers will actually bolt up.

                          The rack mount holes are too far from the rear edge. I'm going to have to lower them and then add spacers.

                          Because of the way they're contoured, the mount towers won't sit flat on their intended locations, so I'll have to lower those and add spacers.

                          But since all the required parts except the spacers are already digitally built that shouldn't be too hard.

                            One job taken care of... Now I have to make space for the tie rod ends

                              Finally starting to look like something I can really use:

                                And after even more work, I think I have the steering rack, tie rods, rack boots and engine mount towers deconflicted.
                                Now I need to update the front bulkhead to free up dynamic clearance for the sway bar, but that can wait for another day.
