Building Body Supports for Body Work

by on Jan.01, 2011, under Disassembly

To build the frame to support the body for the body repair, I re-purposed some of the lumber I used to secure the car in the trailer while transporting it home from North Dakota. What I built are basically tall and wide sawhorses – tall enough to hold the body so that the chassis can be rolled in and out underneath it and wide enough so that there is adequate room to clear the wheels on both sides. I just have the one available parking space in my garage for this project and the chassis and body will need to occupy this one space for the duration. I haven’t determined just how I’m going to get the body on the sawhorses just yet, but will figure out something soon.
