I had little success with a panel beater, I'm hoping for more with this request.
Does anybody have robust bracing for me to brace the body before we lift it off the chassis. I would like to avoid the time and expense of having someone make some up.

I made up two simple braces that connected the upper door mount with the door latch mount. This worked well. I am sure I still have one but cut the other up to use the tube. It would be simple to make up another.
Of course this will only work if there are still floors and sills.

Thanks Alladin. Yep, new floors and sills put in By Bob Cousins, all really solid. However, being a long door there is no outer sill so it is not as stiff as my short door body was when I removed it from the chassis. I don't want to risk the superb work Bob did getting the body so well aligned.
I'll give you a call next week and arrange a time to borrow the one you have.
