Hey!

Long time since my last update. I have made some progress. I got both front frame rails positioned, attached to the jig, and partially welded to the floor supports. I have also prepped a bunch of metal and modified how I am going to progress with the car.

I ended up having to remove and disassemble the frame rail assemblies. 1 or both of them were off when I originally welded them in and I wanted to fix it. Plus, it made it much easier to work with just the frame rail instead of the entire assembly. I have also been updating my frame dimensions in SolidWorks and it has been paying out! I do plan to upload the dimensions when I am done repairing the frame portion of the car as well as any additional dimensions that I acquire from the Fastback conversion (i.e. location of the rear seat and trim brackets, not the same on the Coupe).

I have, just now, noticed an issue with the rear of the car (see photos). It appears that one of the rear quarters is a 1/4" higher than the other and looks funny from the rear. I figured that some sort of repair was done to the car. Not a big deal since all the metal is being replaced.

I am almost done editing my latest video! Check it out here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC0b...r7z6nemIIzUgyg

Hey! Iím am using all new sheet metal from Dynacorn. Itís worth it in my opinion because you end up with all new metal. You will probably have to play with it a bit to make right but itís good stuff. Be sure to build a jig. Check out my YouTube channel in my sig block.

I found you on YouTube and posted a few things on there I open the account on here a couple weeks ago I believe and completely forgot about it trying to see if I can get dimensions of your jig. I did post a small video underneath of the comments on YouTube what I’m doing but not everything. I should make a build post.
