Very nice work on the adapter plate. Why is there a downward angle towards the front of the car?

Also, nice work in the panel recovering job. What material did you use? Are you going to add the strap to the upper door panel?
I don't think I'm gonna add the strap, but maybe, the material is upholstery vinyl from Joanne's fabric . and the angle is because the fire wall is leaned back some so its to makes the master sit more level

Had a snow day yesterday and got the body off and the frame out from under the car, been a while since I've been able to make any progress on the car.

If you box the side rails make sure you leave a decent sized window in the boxing so you can get your fingers in there to replace/install the body cushions
