Nothing special, other than fitting the body to frame blocks. That can be done after the body is on the frame. Lever up at spots, and slip in the blocks. Some are held fast with wood screws, you may see small holes in the subframe for those.



Original blocks to see location. There are blocks too at the rear crossmember. And at the front cowl, a smaller block for fitting wood screw thru the leading edge of the splash shields.





Body on, you can if you wish not fully tighten the body to frame bolts at this point of assembly, but have found if frame is straight and firewall lines up with the dash to frame brackets, then fix the body in place to continue the rest of the assembly.

Is your frame STRAIGHT? Many 26-7 frames are sagged in the motor mount/firewall area!!!
