32Chevy Square?

Since my car went through a fire . I has little to no wood left. I have the body up front mounted securely so it wont move. If i go and push on the top of the rear window i noctice that the body sways forward. How do i make sure if i need to weld everthing tight like it sit now or like it is when its swayed. whats the easyiest way to figure out if your car is ""square"" ?

It's the door fit that will change dramatically if you push in at the top rear roof. 4 door is harder than a 2 door because the center door post could be sagged down or pushed up, depending on how the body is leveled.

Your roof sides are bent up and needs to be straightened first.

You may want to start on a solid cement floor and keep blocking it up till it's sits level, then tack the door skins in place. That makes it difficult to get inside to do welding & fab work. Some build a jig to hold the body several feet off the ground to get in from below.
