Question to you Bob. How old is the body on your car? Is it before '92 when I got mine? I thought all of the 34 Classic Motor Carriages,Fiberfab,SB kits had metal cages going through the roof. You must have metal in place in both door jams left and right where other Manufacturers bodies used wood I am assuming. If so I can't help but wonder how you used wood in place of the steel frame tubes.
No need to apologize, I got mine in 89. They made a lot of changes after mine, they change the braces in the trunk, they changed the wiper motor placement from up above the windshield as they should be to down below on the cowl, I believe they changed the bracing under the dash. as far as I can remember they had metal coming up behind the door like it was a "B" pillar then tubing going over the top of the door and down and it went onto the "A" pillar, or what they called the "A" pillar, not like any "A" pillar I ever seen. The "A" and "B" pillar were to be welded to the floor, but if you but if you did that you could not ever take the body off the frame, so I bolted all mine in.
There was a bar or tubing going across from one side to the other right above the windshield, and another going across right above the fiberglass piece that went below the headliner. My body is also different than most in the firewall and the hump. I can't remember how all the metal work was, I will post a picture of my body, you can see the difference. It's dirty but you get the idea.
