You may need to bolt in the spreader bar under the frame rails to keep the rails the proper distance apart .

Hi,
I found this thread and the measurments are very helpful .My 1967 mustang is get the same work done but more. I have the fire wall out and the right frame rail is rusted thru I have a new danacorn frame shock tower assy.Someone before me replaced frame rails to transmission .I'm rdy to cut the right frame rail off but I get differant measuements using windsheil tabs to upper corner of fender rad. brace. and I tried going in a "X" pattern to fender forward edge. I tried the edge of rocker tabs to frount bottom forward edge of frame rail. Driver side frame rail is good. Motor was in car and looked lined up.
The dimension I get 1/2 to 3/4 differance
I need to get a good place find where I'm correct on measurements and go from there.. I know I need photo's to show more

Sorry to thread jack, but I have a similar question and this thread would be a great place to encompass all these apron measurements. I picked up a 67 coupe as a project car. The firewall had already been removed and the aprons were pushed around to get the old firewall out. I have the new firewall fitted, but I am unsure where the aprons are supposed to sit in order to have correct fender and hood alignment. I put my hood on to check alignment between hood and upper cowl, but they don't seem to be lining up and the hood hinges seem to be binding a little so I think my aprons may need to be spread apart. Hopefully these pictures help with the measurements I am looking for and hopefully they will help others.

IIt was a bit hard to get pics of the measurements so i just wrote them down ,this is a un wrecked 67 coupe .
Starting with D,between the aprons at the hood hinges .
D = 40 inches between aprons
A=7 inches ,this is to the outside of the cowl side panel on all 3 measurements
B= 7 1/8 again to the outside edge
C= 7 1/8 also to the outside edge .
Driver side ,all measurements to the out side edge of the cowl side panel from the inner apron .
E= 7 1/8 out side edge of cowl panel
F = 7 1/8 out side edge of cowl side panel
G = 9 1/4 outside of cowl side panel
H= 9 7/8 out side edge of cowl panel to inner apron .
Hope this helps

I could use the measurement form Top edge of 90 degree tab on top rocker panel end to forward edge (end of frame rail)
I checked my measurements again from windshield edge to upper corner of rad. edge on 1/2 inch off.
I'm going to leave old radiator brace in for now as a measurement for new frame rail.

From the 90 * at the rocker ,and that is the same as the face of the torque box so you will have to square it over if the boxes are not in place ,is 42 3/4 inches to the end of the frame rail

This is exactly what I needed and after putting my fenders on to check gaps I can see my passenger apron needs to get pushed out. I have about 39 1/4 inches at measurement D. Thank you very much for taking the time to take those measurements!
