Thanks. I've read a bunch of stuff you've written here. It's great, however my choices a while back make that not the best choice right now.
About 12 years ago I made the decision to replace the rusted through rear frame rail in my '66 mustang coupe. So naturally I attacked it with a sawall, then ordered a replacement rail. Yup... brilliant move on my part... first of many I assure you. So after 10 years or so (and several moves), I wanted to actually finish it.
If I was starting now and knew that the other rail wasn't tweaked, I'd just use that as a reference, but with it being moved (once with a front loader, thanks to farmer Ray), I'm not confident that the other hasn't been. I wanted to take the measurements, not only diagonally, but along the other axis as well.
