Shell removal confusion
I am prepping my 70 ambassador for a shell off restoration. I have spent the last couple months compiling as much information as I can handle on the matter. I am still confused on one thing. Correct me if I'm wrong, but; the rivets under the belt line are the only thing binding the outer shell to the floor's C-channel. The channel then bolts to the frame and floor to bind the whole thing together. If I remove all the rivets holding the body to the C-channel what is keeping the shell from slipping down to the ground? In short, with all rivets out what is the body now sitting on? Do the ribs sit on the frame, thereby holding it up?
