BEEN WAITING LONG FOR THIS TO HAPPEN


I THINK I NAILED THE REAR PERFECT,TO BODY LOCATION..RIDE HEIGHT IS NOT DETERMINED YET

As the title says,I been waiting to get enough guys over to help me reinstall the body back on the frame for final engine/trans location.I was a happy camper to say the least.It took a little longer than the last time I did this.Everthing seems to get a little bit tighter as more welding takes place,which I think is understandable.
The guys were great and patient as I bribed them with Pizza & Coronas.Thanks the Gods for Beer!
The trans cuttout that I did previously,came out right on the dime.I was happy with it.The engine setback I had was real close also,in that the motor mount plates/trans mounts, were not welded to the frame yet.
I will be bolting on the body to frame to make it fit exactly as I will be making reinforcement braces all the way around in the body.This will make door hinge supports,instead of original wood used in the ancient days.Dash braces,etc. will also be made soon.Pictures of that will be shown also.Meantime here are pictures of the body been installed to the frame,with some mug shots of my friends,whose faces only a mother could love.

WITHOUT FRIENDS,THIS WAS NOT POSSIBLE
