I'v been watching the progress and love it, Nice work.
Some day I will be able to apply these learnings to completion of my RCR D.Body Alignment, Part I
With the drivetrain still setting in the chassis it was time to check body fit and alignment. To do so the tires need to be in place and the D Type sitting at its expected ride height. The rear suspension was temporarily assembled.

Some rear section design work was started before the body was set in place. A mock-up of the fuel tank and supports was made from foam core board to check fitment – it being much easier to work with light foam core board then heavy metal pieces. More measurements and design work remain. We plan to fabricate a steel sub frame to support the fuel tank and some other items.

The front suspension was next assembled and wheels temporarily placed. The preliminary location of the upper and lower A arms documented in a prior post was followed.

With the wheels, engine, and fuel tank mock-up in place we are almost ready to test fit the body.
