Corvette help- attaching new nose and quarter

I have been working on a '66 roadster since 2004 and doing the ground work to hang a new quarter and nose on the original body. I am hoping to get some insight on how to hold the parts in place while the bonding cement cures. I imaging there are a lot of ways to do it and would like to hear of those experiences. I have seen one photo of a '72 where the guy put dry wall screws about every 6" along the bonding strip but the factory didn't do that.

All photos and text input will be appreciated.

Thanks, PJ
