Thanks Mike, I will let my brother know! I dont know any history on this frame it is in great shape though, the old one was rusted out along the entire bottom. I really want him to get going on this thing so i can drive it

The ass end side to side body mount the, previous owner decided it wasnt needed and left it out..... Took me forever to figure out why it needed a 1" stack of washers to shim the body correctly

Well, I worked on this thing from 7:30am to 5:30 pm, I got the new trunk brace installed, plug welded the new floor pan to the trunk pan at the factory location, fitted and welded the right outer rocker panel, lots of progress! the car is starting to really take shape and is way more rigid.
