    After installing the front end, I will be starting on the body work on my 73 k5. The goal is to clean up the frame, underbody and coat with por-15 after all panels have been replaced. What is the best way to keep the body straight for panel replacement via installing with new polyurethane body mounts and or what other means? I will be replacing both rear quarter panels, rockers and floor pans. Frame has little to no rust. How do I keep the body from twisting and bending when removing from frame? thanks

    Triangulation supprts as well as horizonal supports, simply cut to length and tack weld into place.
