The bolts don't necessarily have to end up centered perfectly on the bushings. If the sub frame is where you want it tighten them up and you're done.

A Pillar mount would block your Pheriphill side vision.
Need to see all around the glass just like Road Racing.

A 73 casting should be fine.
As for pics.....we can't host them her, you'll have to use a photo hosting site like Flickr and then link the picture into the post here....there are a few sites out there that host pics for free.

Z cars were always great. I wouldn't mind having one today. It would have to be a 240 or 260 though. Even an early 280 would be nice. One of our band instructors in high school saved for years and finally bought a new one around 1980 or so. Bronze/cinnamon colour. It was pretty sharp. Another of my buddies on the football team had a 240 hand me down from his mother. Occasionally he would take me home from practice and really hammer that thing.

You going to give any of the daggy welds a touch up with a grinder before you paint?

Sorry to hear that Brian, I understand what you went thru. My business model changed dramatically a few years ago. I know all about "corporate greed". But that's a story for another day. As it turns out it seems that I was drastically under insured. If things work out I will be lucky with .15 on the $1. I did have 2 policies though and I may be able to recoup the loss on my car stuff and car tools through my homeowners policy. I am preparing inventory right now in prep for a claim. Unfortunately the car is a loss with no recovery on it as it is a "motor vehicle". Not sure how that is though because there was no drivetrain. I will argue that it is one big car part but I know how far that will go. Bad part is this thing had ZERO rust. Solid as the day it was put together. That was the big reason I decided to take it on as project to begin with.
