Thanks for the kind words, glad this thread is helpful

The rear door gap on my driver's side is still fairly inconsistent, so no I'd say the body hasn't done much conforming. It sounds to me like your issue is more related to front clip position than body mounts. Before messing with the mounts I'd unbolt the front end supports at the frame horns and use a floor jack to raise the right front corner a little bit to see if the door gap improves.

As for the POR prep, I just use elbow grease and sand paper. Once any loose bits are removed I use their "Metal Reay" phosphoric acid mix per instructions and then brush on the POR with the cheap foam brushes from Ace hardware.

Cool

I am going to go the poly route also. Hopefully, sometime this year the body will be dropped back onto the frame!
I have been bombarded with a lot of work on my house, and this has taken away time from my main hobby-the vette.
Anyway, I was wondering since the ride height is raised about 1/4" will this cause any problems with other stuff, like the steering shaft?
Thx Ed

I didn't notice any issues with the steering column alignment, but as you can see in the earlier post my linkage isn't quite stock.
