I have done a number of clips over the years. I belive the 76 and 79 use the same body. You should make sure, look in an interchange book. I always used a spot in the center of the door and the center of the windshield. Use a common point to measure from and cut both cars the same. I always leave the doors on to check the fit before final welding. I also leave the wheels on both cars, it makes it easy to move them once cut. Clamp the cars together and use a few spot welds to hold it and check all of the alignment points. Very important: Make sure your cuts are square and straight. Don't use a saws all, the blade flexes giving a bad cut. Use a large carbide wheel or a cirular saw with a metal cutting blade will work too. Good luck, it's easier than it looks if you take your time on the measurements and cuts.
