67 Mustang Front Crossmember

I have a 67 mustang coupe and am redoing the body work currently. I have seen many articles on how to replace the radiator support but havent seen any on how to replace the front crossmember on that. I am planning to weld it in myself but was wondering if i needed to brace the engine compartment in order for the car not to basically cave in as so many horror stories i have heard of. While im working on that im going to be installing new fender aprons as well. Any help would be greatly appreciated.


thanks
RJ

Simply tac a temporary brace on the underside of the rails once you have it up on stands and leveled. You are removing the engine and suspension, correct?

I just put in the following parts in our 1966 mustang.

1. battery apron
2. core support
3. cross member
Just drill out the spot welds and clean the surface area.
Then put your new parts on and clamp it all up.
make certain that it is all square before you weld it up.
Also on the aprons,Do they have the fender mounting clip holes
if not? I have seen people put the fender on and line the door/hood
gaps up and drill bolt holes.
But I purchased the better parts for ours.
