Now the motor has been re-installed into the finished frame. The frame rolled under the car and jacked up at the back. The rear bolts are installed first and then the jack under the center of the frame lifts it against the fire wall mounts. There are shims placed there. I started with the original ones and measured to the holes till I got the same measurement as the old frame. You have to bolt the frame in place and let the jack down to get a good measurement. There is a little flexing without the fenders and other stuff on. It all works together to make the car solid. With just the inner fender wells on, you could jack under the center front and they would move a little bit. The jack stands were under the bottom of the rocker panels. The rocker panels are part of the frame in uni-body cars.
