This is by far the most critical part of the job. We must have measured for an hour making sure that the front clip is in the right location and square to the original frame.
We still have to make a transition between the original frame and the Camaro subframe. Because the customer wanted this truck to sit close to original ride height, the sub frame had to be welded in fairly low. Normally, the top of the subframe is much higher than the top of the original frame, making the vehicle sit much lower. Regardless, we'll get it done and make it look like the factory did it.
There will be boxing plates welded on the top, bottom and both side to complete the transition. Completely boxing the frame greatly increases the overall strength.
