Thanks Wagonman.First off Nice car. Secondly did you get your fastener issue straightened out? If not I have the Big Yellow Book from Parts Mix that I could let you borrow. It details most if not all the correct type and placement of just about everything on our B-bodys. I am about done with it. PM me if interested.
Oh I know how much fun you had welding upsidedown all to well . . . but we do what we need to do so we can complete our projects . . .Got the US Car Tools frame rail connectors welded in today. What a bitch to do it laying on your back. 12 gauge to 18 gauge didn't help. It should stiffen the old boy up fairly well. Some rotary file work is needed to clean up the chicken **** and runs but it went well overall. We didn't burn the car or the shop down. The Eastwood 135 MIG worked like a champ.

I just purchased the frame connectors. This car wont be a racer but plan on putting ~600 pounds + of torque in it just for fun. Being a hard top I didn't want to split the quarters in the door jambs again.Which kit did you buy from US tool? Just the sub frame or the whole shooting match.
Also. How do you like the Eastwood mig? I have a larger 175 miller that is community property(belongs to my uncle and I just use it most of the time). Been threating to buy a dedicated sheet metal rig.
This is one of those times I wished I had put a lift in but still feel I made the best decision. My neck hurts. Nothing that a few beers and 800 mg of ibuprofen cant't take care of.Oh I know how much fun you had welding upsidedown all to well . . . but we do what we need to do so we can complete our projects . . .
Keep us updated on your progress !
