Got the other side welded up yesterday. . .Really nothing to picture. 

I took my final measurements and it looks like I'm within 1/16 for squarness and setting in the frame.
 
No work today, but tomorrow I am going to finish the frame and do the inner fenders to get it all tied together.  Right now, the chassis will support it's own weight without dropping.  It bows quite a bit if I try to lift the car via the cross member in the front.  But once I have the inners attached to the body, that will not be an issue. 
 
I am going to make cardboard templates and use the original inners.  I'll attach then to the 86 inners and connect it all to the firewall.  The next thing will be to construct a new floor  Once the floor is tied to the frame, she'll be ready to put down.

I'm impressed Steve-and your not using a frame machine to make sure it is straight.

OK  Here we go.  Today I worked on the fender mounting.  The left inner is tied into the body and the car get stiffer and stiffer every day.
 
This isn't pretty now, but when done, and in one color, it will look allot better.  I'll hide this side with an inner fender anyway.  The Battery is going behind the wheel on this tide.
