I have my motor out of my 69 and the sheet metal is also removed except for the fenders which are still on the car, however they are loose and I'll take them off tomorrow. My question is this: how should I reassemble the car, should I install the motor with the sheet metal off or install sheet metal and then the motor? I would like to do it with the sheet metal off if it is not to difficult to do the metal with the motor in place. Thanks for your help!
I'd put the motor in first and then the sheet metal (inner fenders already attached to the fenders when you install them); that's the way it was assembled originally. Rad support and header panel first, then fenders, then hood.
