Lorenzo, don't forget the wood blocks that fit up in the sub-frame that the body bolts go through, also there are small screw holes in the sub-frame in the trunk that are used to screw the wood blocks to the sub-frame. I used Nylock nuts on my 26.

Lorenzo Leon:

Forget the cotter pins use all metal lock nuts, it is a much EASIER AND FASTER
