Though I'm not sure what the make is of the bodyshell I'll be using, I did know the rear panel was angled by 18 degrees, so I planned the kickup to match. I planned to start the kickup, or Z, 14 inches from the rear crossmember, and marked the chassis and jig accordingly, then clamped a length of 3x1 3/4 inch x 3/16 wall thickness box section at this mark at an 18-degree angle. Knowing where the front of the box section intersected the chassis at the 14-inch mark, I could then mark the point where the rear of the box section intersected the chassis at its underside. Scribing a line between these two points gave me my cut line for both the chassis 'rail and the box section.
