I'm guessing the weight around 600lbs gutted. I did build the dolly the body is sitting on so it can be moved around as needed. You could make a fixture but it would be expensive with all the clamps and pins. It is very easy to work on the lower body while on the table. I just cut most of the bolts out since they were frozen. Good luck. Hoard a lot of parts you will need it along with some cash for extras.

All Righty Then

Aim above morality. Be not simply good, be good for something, and ask yourself two questions:

1. Have you felt and known joy in your life
2. Have you given joy to someone else ....

Tell everyone about your car!
