37 pontiac/nova sub

I've got a 74 nova subframe for my 37, anybody done one of these? I'm looking for some pics or info on where to graft the two together. I've seen it done several ways. I'm thinking about 4 inches or so in front of the front body mount cutting the frame at about 45 degrees so that it will meet up with angle on the subframe. Any thoughts will be appreciated.

Thanks, Slantback

I did a Nova sub on my 51 Ford F1.......I used the whole clip and positioned it under my existing frame............This was 15 years ago and it has held up well. See pic.

Seems to me. a Nova clip may be a bit wide for a 37. It is a tad wide for my truck, but did work.
