3 years, 8 month and 15 days later
Today I placed the body back on the frame with the invaluable help of Marco. It took me 3 years, 8 month and 15 days but it starts to look like a car again. Still there is a lot of work to be done but this is a major milestone. Since the steering column has to be installed first and the brake and clutch pedal are installed it takes a special move to slide the body over the steering column and pedals. Front end down, rear end up. slightly move the frame backwards a bit and lower the body a bit, frame backwards, body down etc. Then, with the body in place align it with the holes and insert the body bolts with the seals in place between the body and the frame. Piece of cake but it took us the best of the day.
