I am staring to mount the first body parts to my rolling chassis. I got the nose clip mounted but without any reference points or measurements it is hard to make the correct adjustments or worst the first cuts into the fiberglass parts.
Since we have some very accomplished expert roaming this page i wanted to see if those experts would provide some guidance to us not so accomplished builders.
I was wondering which pats should be mounted in which order to make alignment of all parts easy.

Here is what i thought
1. Rocker covers
2. F panel
3. Nose clip to align with F panel
4. Trunk enclosure (no alignment reference)
5. Rear clip
6. Trunk lid
7. Door caps align with nose / F piece and rear clip
8. engine cover

Please chime in all mighty experts

(from memory...)

1. Rocker covers

2. Nose clip
3. F panel - align to nose

Iterate these 3 until it's right - trunk surround (enclosure) sets the location of the trunk lid:
4. Trunk enclosure (no alignment reference)
5. Rear clip
6. Trunk lid

7. Door caps align with nose / F piece and rear clip
8. engine cover
