I had to google 'pop 103e' to find out what you're talking about. All bodys i've worked with are bolted to the frame. the body mounting brackets can be riveted to the frame but the body itself is bolted. That is how you get all your alignments for doors etc is shimming between these body bolts to the frame.
What are you going to do with it? or am i just that dumb?

It's a unit body, so get out a 4 in. grinder and a set of 1/4" drills and a big screwdriver to separate the metal after drilling thru the spot welds..

A perfect place for Blair hole cutters (thats what I used way back when.). A lot of work up towards the front/firewall area. Now, I would use my plasma cutter and save much time.

The doors and other openings won't have to be braced while cutting and I even left the glass in to help keep body straight and true. A pretty tough body shell as long as the floor is left intact.

The first attempt.. I just cut frame off from the rear spring mounts forward and added new tubing forward. Kind of like Nova Camaro style. Second refresh, a few years later, I added new tubing from the old spring mount/frame junction to the rear bumperetts (full frame) and added coil overs ladder bars and roll cage. Outriggers from main ladder frame to the inner rocker panels. Resulting in a solid car that doesn't suffer from " body torque " and doors popping open under hard accelleration.




I looked up the Pop 103e and it is a completely different car than my 56 Anglia and my 57 Escort.. Sorry! BOB
