It's always tough, I've had a few friends pass away in the last few years, guys that I grew up with and it's always tough.

All the best John
Thanks Ray. I appreciate that.

Here is a picture that will make it clear. In order to hide the welds I built this corner assembly and then installed it in the car,

The body shims and mount is on the lower frame support. Above that is the body mount, then the floor board and above that the cone shaped convertible support. You have 4 pieces in the picture and the shims and pad go between the bottom 2.
