12. The next morning, the paper and tape were removed.
13. The body was brought out of the booth and set on jackstands so the rotisserie assembly could be removed.
14. An engine hoist was used to support the driver’s side so those jackstands could be removed, making room for the chassis to come in from that side. The passenger-side jackstands were located in the rocker area so the chassis would not have contact with them.
15. Spitzer has a set of Go Jacks that make rolling the chassis around super simple. These are fairly pricey, but under-wheel rollers can be purchased from Harbor Freight that can emulate these.
16. With the body up and the chassis on skates, the two were lined up. Then the hoist was lowered, dropping the driver side. Then it was moved to lift the passenger side of the jackstands. Then that side was dropped down.
17. After making sure everything was positioned properly, we put the solid Art Morrison body mounts in place and tightened them down.
18. Project XS is permanently sitting on its new foundation. Now the rest of the bodywork can be completed. The doors, decklid, and front clip will be installed and aligned. Then it will all be blocked and painted, but that’s a story for another month.
