    Default Bracing a convertible

    Okay im going to go to work on my floors and floor braces and inner rockers on my 63 rag impala and was wondering what was a simple way to brace the car where it maintains the integrity of the car. Also any advise on the metal work (pics and tips) greatly appreciated, thanks again

    Thanx SIX1RAG and PLANK. Pics are worth 1,000 words, its good to get different ideas. I see u put the car on the rotissorie w the car braced and the floors cut out. I was planning to do the work on the frame and then put it on the rotissorie. Thinking it might tweak it when I flip and they were cut out
