    Pointers on things to do before body goes on for the last time?

    Trying think of those items best done before the body goes on:
    Check all electrical circuits to make sure nothing has been disturbed
    Interior is all done
    Trunk carpet all done
    Yet to glass in the breeze brake ducts (should this be done before or after body on?

    Based on lessons learned, any input appreciated!

    Fit and drill your roll bars if you haven't already done so.
    Set any rivnuts you plan to use for the splash guards (front & rear).

    Those are a couple of things that come to mind. My body is on for the last time that I plan to put it on, but it will be coming off again for paint.

    Wholeheartedly agree, even when you think you have - its elusive and that hot air will gopher it’s way in and microwave you...
