    Have a very clean 1970 shell and do not want to cut up the floor in any way or shape. What product do we suggest to link the frames on this car that is just bolt in. Any suggestions guys? Pat

    their are a lot of people here that have his products or similar, i suggest that you weld them in and use solid bushings, that will be the best way to tie the front to to the back.

    PTFB, Alston, and Competition Engineering make bolt-in SFCs that will fit your car. The PTFB design is better as there is little loss of ground clearance compared to the other two. I have Jegs SFCs in my '78, which are similar to the CE design. Originally installed in 2002, I removed them last summer for repainting when installing new leaf springs. They were never welded in and there was no sign of bolt-hole elongation after 9 years.

    On my 73 I did the PTFB subframe connectors. Bolted to the front sub frame and back frame rail not welded to the back until I had the front end aligned all four wheel to make sure the front and rear wheels were "square".

    Also did the solid bushings from DSE. Worked great. Fender gaps were good.

    Only short drives so far but very solid.
