I have a roll aroung work table about 30 inches high, screw down a 3/4 sheet of plywood, then draw a grid. Line up the body so you can get everything straight and square. the 32 frame is contoured so band saw wood spacers to match the reverse of the frame . then take measurements off square and uprights, I am gong to channel my glass 32 , but I have done model t's, added some steel and new wood, sub struxcture. I have a 31 nash roadster on a plywood right now just need to build new doors, I made an all steel sub structure then a frame.
