Body on Frame

Time to test fit the body on the frame to establish the rear tire clearance to the body and rear fenders.

Because I will need to take the body on and off of the frame often during the build I rebuilt the body dolly and removed the hood, trunk lid and rear fenders to lighten the weight of the body and to allow the center of weight to better balance the center of the lift point for the gantry crane that I will use to test fit the body.

I then flipped the frame over again to finish weld the rear suspension mount points, the rear end brake calibers, the ladder bar mounts and the spring pads and then test fit the body and identify where the tires will end up in relation to the rear fenders.
