what if you build brakets that run under the car and bolt up to the body mounts, like a peice of 2X3 channel the sticks out 1 foot on each side that slides under tha car. then hook onto the 2X3 channel with a sling or chain and use those as the liftinf points. u would need a bottle jack to lift the body off the frame a bit to slide the 2X3 inbetween but that isnt hard work at all. i would suggest one at the front body mounts under the firewall and the other at the rear mounts so u have 4 lifting points. it involves a liitle bit of fabbing but thats easy stuff to fab :cool:

i just realized that the engine/ transmission would have to be pulled to get the front brackt inplace, but if ur pulling the body off the frame then i imagin the front end is off and the motor/tranny is already pulled
