On the frame, it’s from me from me re-welding all the factory weld's that would never pass in today’s world, I going to sand blast it then powder coated before all my speed tech stuff arrives. On the body, the outer panels had really bad rot, the under structure was good, but always hard to say on the early car's until you tear them down.

The new rear X member/ shock supports with a little mod needed to get a tight fit and keep it centered and aligned right.

Had a little time to spend on some mock-up work today, The frame is fully welded about 10 hours worth of total work. Hope to reinstall and make sure all the crosshairs line up....
