Default Re: Need help with subrails

The body has lost its stiffness, so alignment of the doors and deck lid have likely been compromised. I strongly recommend that you tack weld the doors and deck into proper alignment before replacing the body rails.
I also suggest that you take dimensions from another Coupe which has been restored. Establish a datum such as the body's "A" Pillar, and take all fore-aft dimensions from it.
