Hi guys I’m working on a 67' ChevII and I’m doing a custom 3 link on it. Im replacing the frame rails and adding a cross member to mount the links to. Now I have the x member and the frame rails tacked in. I was looking at the whole deal and it looks like I can drop the whole pig out. My question is: now that I have the rear rails and x member tacked and measured out for the car, can I remove the whole unit and complete it out of the car? Or should I just weld it up in the car? Some of the parts I need to get to and weld are very hard to reach, this would make it alot easier as you can imagin. Request assistance please

Drop it out after you make meticulous measurements. Then make a jig to sit it on to counter all the warpage it's gonna have. Once you get it welded, take it loose from the jig & correct the warpage so it fits correctly.
