30 coupe on 32 frame

Thanks Frisco, I appreciate the information. I bought the frame from So-cal and of course because they said it was for a model A I assumed it would fit right on. So far I 've had to make new hat channels for the raised area over the rear axle and put in a new floor in the back as well. The car originally had a rumble seat but I am putting my gas tank back there so it now has a trunk. My problem is the body sits about 1/2 off the frame, again I now assume this is why they channel the front 3/4 of an inch .Is this correct? I saw a model A roadster [on a 32 frame] at our local So-cal here in Vegas and it has a spacer between the body and the frame and knifes down near the front, It's not channeled and the firewall sits on top of the frame. Does the body have a small arc to it or do I just have a short between my headsets? Any information you can give me on the bodies would be greatly appreciated. Pops.
