this isn't the one I was looking for, but it'll probably do for now. 

 

I'll keep searching

Nice one Carlos that jig picture will be a massive help. I wish i had found it before making mine!!!

 

The other one is from the Haynes manual

Yeah i got the Haynes one. Hey Carlos.. The jig info you linked me to is incredible! Iam assuming its from the factories. You dont have any other kind of paper work that goes with the one you sent do you? it will be a massive help.

Well guys. i ve been doing a some work on the car this week due to having it off work! Since carlos has linked me to a manufacture diagram I have been re measuring making sure its all true and the subframes are still aligned...All is good. so ive been wondering where to make a start and i feel its best i work from the rear-forward. I started with the companion boxes which have been welded in along with the strange looking inner sill stiffner and the rear clousure panel. Also the two rear arches have been welded in. I finshed the valance today minus the closures. Looks like i will be starting on the rear working towards the quater panels tomorrow....

This is my vertical laser that i have used to pen a straight line. It has been set so the laser pens directly down with no offsets at different distances from the beam source. I used this to align my jig and my two subframes and matched the measurements to drawings.20160531_160732.jpg

Once every thing was in place the laser was fired down the floor pan boot pan and bulk head. I got the bulkhead central by bolting it to the front subframe towers (which had been lasered) and putting the laser across the front bulk head and making some marks.

Ive been able to make sure my arches are the same both sides by dropping plumb lines off jigging points from the rear subframe to the main datum line on my main jig. This gives a fixed point (same for both sides.) i then dropped a plumb line through the shock mounts on the arches and measuring the distances between the jig plmb line and the shock plumb line.... sory for a crap picture...

Brave man, taking it back that far, I wouldn't have the guts to go that far.
