I have a 54 stude 2 door C coupe and want to come up with a contraption to lift the body off the frame yet keep the body as complete as possible such as leaving fender on. I figure I'd have to pull the steering column, probably radiator to keep from damaging it. Has anyone else tried this (meaning the whole body not just center body section)? I would suppose it would need to be supported in several locations. (front cowl, body and rear member). Was thinking cherry pickers, come alongs or jacks etc..)
Any ideas or pictures would be helpful.
