    The subrails bolt to the frame and the body attaches to the subrails. Someone will be along with some better pics, but this kind of gives you the idea.

    Another potential issue to come up is getting the doors to open and close properly, and alignment of the belt line. When a 34 looses its floor it tends to open like a banana peel. Best way to get it to work correctly is to support the B pillar with a screw jack with a bar welded from B pillar to B pillar. Adjust the gaps with the doors closed and push the rear of the car up and down to adjust the belt line of the doors to match the belt line of the body. DO NOT WELD THE REAR INNER FENDER WELLS TO THE SUBRAILS BEFORE DOING THIS. It will make a mess - ask me how I know.
