A while back I started this thread about bringing my half built 67 race car back from the dead https://www.camaros.net/forums/133-b...bout-time.html . At the end I was contemplating taking it back to stock-ish. Well that is the plan. In the process of turning it into a race car, a lot was cut out that I have to now put back (floors, rear frame, inner structure, etc..) Ive lost a lot of reference points. I am building a jig to square it up and get it back close to where it needs to be to start welding. I have nothing to hold the rear half of the car up while positioning the frame rails and floor. I am hoping someone has a car on a jig and can grab a measurement for me.
Rear bumper mount bolt Height from the Datum line - Its the only point I have to hold the back of the car in position at the moment.
I also need the measurements of the bolt holes in the inner fender brace bracket that is welded to the firewall on the body mount box - Mine are cut off, I need to make new ones.
Can you drop a few pictures so we can visualize what you have going on.
There are a few pictures in the thread linked in the first post.
Basically I have a 67 that was being turned into a bracket race car. The entire floor and a lot of the inner structure was removed for frame rails and huge wheel tubs. I am taking it back to a "closer to stock configuration". Currently the only real reference points I have are the firewall frame mounts, rocker panels, and tailpanel. I plan to retain the tail panel, Due to the changes on the car the tailpanel has sagged down. This resulted in the rockers sagging, Rear window opening flattened slightly and quarters panels have bowed/moved causing door misalignment.
I am building a modified jig to support the shell by the Rocker panels and firewall frame mounts to square and level the front 2/3 of the shell. I need to determine how high the tailpanel is in relation to the datum line measurements available for the frame locations. This will allow me to support the rear 1/3 of the shell by the bumper mount holes in the tailpanel. It will assist with the placement of the rear frame rails
