Body, Meet Frame


It’s a big day… for the first time ever, the nearly completed body has been joined to the new frame!   I visited Full Circle early this morning and snapped the pictures (below).  This was a little worrisome, as this is NOT the frame that the body left the factory with back in ’71. I bought this frame off eBay 3 years ago because it originally came from a convertible, so it is fully-boxed (and thus much stronger). Mating a body and frame that have never been together before can always expose little alignment problems.  Not in our case!  All mounting holes lined up perfectly!  Next up is final assembly of the front clip, wet sanding and then lots and lots of chrome bits get installed!  As always, click on each picture below to see the full-size image…

SO CLOSE…

    • It’s been a long time coming. To finally see the frame and body come together, although it only took about 20 minutes, was still pretty awesome. I have a brand new full-car wiring kit sitting downstairs, next to the box of new stainless steel brake lines. We’re not quite there yet but we’re getting close!

      I can almost hear the rumble of that new 6.0L LS engine now… 🙂
