40 coupe frame questions

Hey guys
got a 40 coupe trying to save...have no frame but came with TCI mustang 2 front, universal rails 2 x 3 with about 6" kickup in the front, and triangulated four link. If I use the rails with tci front clip, and curved the rails to the 40 frame specs, would this work for the height and caster on the mustang 2? Has anyone done this before. I cannot see spending big dollars for new rails and then cutting them for the four bar

1935 thru '40 use the same frame. You should be able to find a frame in your area. I have a spare '36 frame I paid very little for. They are not all that rare.
