    Has the body been off the frame? I'd suggest you spend some time *adjusting* both doors to the body before modifying the original sheet metal. Adjust the doors to the body, and then the front clip to the body and doors... There are adjustments and shim points to take care of *most* of the gap problems.

    Good luck on your project and keep us all informed!
    Yes its really solid and easy to work with! Cowl plate is on its way to me by post. Body has been out of the frame and i took it out today begause gonna install airbags etc. Im gonna order new door skin to the drivers side patch the other side

    Gonna adjust everything before body work starts. I have huge amount of body shims to use
