Body Jig
« on: August 04, 2011, 06:19:55 AM »
My 67 car was rear-ended in its previous life and the quarters, tail panel, and rails were damaged.  They don't look too bad but should be replaced to make things right.  Would a steel jig be recommended or could I do it without if reference points measure to spec?  Any jigs available on West Coast?

There are many diagrams with measurements (some here, and at Team Camaro - use the search function), so unless you find one locally, I would just build my own. I built mine this spring (with brand new steel rectangular tube), had less than $400.00 in it (Unpainted), but it's GREAT, especially if you are doing rails, floor or trunk pans, etc.., as it keeps everything square / level. Good luck on your build.
