Body Mounts

Stage Three Body mounts

As I wanted the body to be isolated from the frame I relocated the body mounts on the frame to match the locations I had chosen on the body. two at the extreme rear of the frame, two at the rear door post, two at the front door posts and two at the very front. To ensure the proper fit and location of frame to body I placed the frame under the body and using pieces of wood etc shimmed the body in place on the frame. Then using a laser level set vertically check to ensure cent re line alignment and correct position of wheels in the wheel wells etc. The body panels were then installed and correct alignment of doors and panels was made. A front sub frame was fabricated to attach the front of the fenders and side panels along with orginal inner fender panels.
