    I would say no on the rotisserie.... stationary with Jack's stands underneath first, yes but moving around, spinning no way...

    so so you're saying that I need to get the tail light panel in first? what if I was to weld reinforcement braces to connect everything together?

    Those are the options you would have to do.

    I've been trying to find information on the holes in the frame rails at the back but I'm not having any luck. does anyone have any idea where I can find what bolts up to what hole?

    I realized I have no idea how to assemble the rear cross brace with the bumper reinforcements and end pieces. since mine were rotted when I dismantled the car, I never saw how it is supposed to look. Also, When I clamped it to the rear of the frame rails, my trunk extension was resting on the edge of it, is this normal?

    I don't know if this is correct or not. I have the end piece sandwiched between the cross brace and the bumper reinforcement. and is that ebd piece supposed to be touching the quarter panel? can I just go ahead and weld this up like this?

    That end piece should be connected to the trunk extension, not to the quarter panel.

    So does the end piece get sandwiched between the cross brace and the bumper reinforcement?

    the rear cross brace is on and I coated the inside of the frame rails with por-15. hopefully the next picture I post will be of the trunk pan installed.
    Before I can attach it, I need to determine if I need all three holes that are in the bumper mounting area as I only have nuts welded on the first and third hole.
    tmp_17450-20170723_133221-1104930868.jpg and copper weld through primer on frame and pan tmp_27312-20170723_182628-1104930868.jpg
