All body mounts and shims in now, took some measurements. Driver side is 1/4 ahead of pass side. Mmm. Ive pushed, pulled with mounts loose. Still cant make up that 1/4. Tried to compasate 1/8 forward and 1/8 back on each side. Cant get it. Have to play with gaps once I start on front end I guess

Just an FYI, side to side movement at the very rear of the body will result in some front to rear movement at the front cowl mount.

put doors on and fully adjust before front clip ALWAYS then put hood on and align to cowl, then fenders. front clip is ALWAYS last.

there is always a small amount of lean in these cars usually from the springs and bushings. measure the distance from the floor to the frame in a few spots left to right front to back.

Measurements are good on frame. Checked a lot of locations. I guess if these cars like you say always had a lean. Ill live with that. As far as the 1/4 difference o pass and drivers side. Ill have to adjust doors ,front end as I move forward to mounting complete front end. Then it all comes apart again. Lol
