My first posting, I have a 78 Toyota BJ40 Canadian model if that makes any difference, 96 thousand original kilometers. My older brother bought it new, drove for 2 years and sold to an uncle who never drove it off the farm. Has sat for the last 30 years. Now I am starting a restoration. Mechanically its in excellent shape and all original down to the floor mats, even the tires are original I believe. I have most of the body parts I feel I need from Cool Cruisers and am getting into it. My question on replacing the rear sill, I'm sure its mentioned here but could someone point me to the postings. I am not planning on lifting the body off the frame, just replace the frame mounts, and see that the rear sill has 4 mount points to the frame. When replacing it is it best to mount the new one onto the frame and then weld onto the body. What are the recommended steps? Keeping the alignment, etc.
