Widetrack sorry for not mentioning but wheel base is sat at 110.5" both sides and I was even able to pull a diagonal from under the car.I don't under stand how but it measured out the same.
As for painting and body work I had a couple guys come by and give me prices from 8 grand to 12 grand ,about passed out.So in my mind bondo slinging couldn't be that hard so I gave body work a try and it's not for me.I had been talking to a friend who has been doing paint and body work on classic's for 30 years and he was giving me pointers and showing me what to do but after working on just the trunk for about a month I decided body work was not for me.I had a talk with with him and ask him how much he would charge me to do the body and paint work.He told me a job like that is around 10 to 12 grand BUT FOR YOU $4000.00 plus material. Big smile and relief.
