    Meanwhile in my garage.... I was considering repairing my old seat platforms, but there was no even one usable edge so I decided to build them. I am still not sure what seats I’m using so I went with standard mounting system. After I took some time to design panhard bar mounts. It wasn’t easy without axle in the car, but I double checked everything (already with planned 1 inch drop) and have still some adjusting possibilities on design of the leaf bracket. That is all I had to do on underbody, now I’m moving onto body panels, and until my quarterpanel patch arrives I’m sealing and coating underbody and engine bay.

    Milimeters first and Inch in angle brackets. Deawing is for drivers side inly, you have to mirror it for passenger. If you miss some measurement, or detail, just let me know.

    Here is a .pdf file. I added dual units into drawing for easier conversion. Also modified rip at rear-end – 2 holes (I have only one) for optional x-member. I need to install exhaust and shaft to be able take good measurements. I hope it helps someone… S-FRAME 69 Coupe DS.pdf

    Thanks, someone interested?.... just joking :), if someone is, I can share my drawing.

    Yes, even though I modified my drawing design during building it. The plate for the rear part of frame was twice so long as used at the end. I decide to cut it and save some weight :)

    Short weekend summary – finished my sub frame connectors. Now to repair the last damage at rear frame – some nasty holes after woodscrews used to attach exhaust rubber bent by previous owner. And then hooray on body panels…

    Finally done with floor pans! Still have to fabricate both seat platforms, and by this I’m thinking to delete openings for seat fasteners in floor pan and modify seat platform. Now working on tail frame part - weir distorted frame arches. I’m adding extra stiffening plate because I have no idea what is the cause of this damage. Also, I’m starting to measure out position of elements for panhard bar on frame.

    Well, I chose the hard way... I bought a steel sheet (18 Gauge) and started to fabricate own floor pans. I wasn’t sure if my first attempt to bead some panel will be success, or just metal scrap. It’s not the exact copy of original – rolls geometry of the bead roller machine didn’t allow me to make the grooves as close as needed, but I’m happy with the result.

    Thanks Ed, you are kind. I finished drilling yesterday, and the fit is nice tight. Thanks anyway! Yeah, there are many Slovak and of course Czech immigrants in US (not that much as Polish :), mostly on East Coast – NY, PA (Pittsburg). You Grandfathers family came probably in first immigration wave from SK to US. I have to admit, that I was thinking to stay in US too in 2007. I spent 2 years in NY City, but after my visa expired, I decided to come back, because a legal way to stay was too complicated.
