Default Re: Need help with subrails

I would recommend the body be fit up on the frame, after it is checked to be straight & properly aligned. The cowl is always the key fit. The body rails or sills should be fit up off the cowl and the rear body cross member. The floor support rails also have to be involved. You will need a set of body mount blocks & pads. The original rivet locations are more obvious after all the pieces are fit together. A person needs a lot of clamps and clecos if you don't have them. Sheet metal screws will work but clecos are easier to work with and leave a hole that can be easily welded back up if readjustment is needed.
