so i have attached some strips to the sectioned seam area for strength, i felt the chop was high in the back so i cut the b and c pillars a bit, i decided on a boss 302 for a donor car, stretched the frame/floorpan, i attached the bottom of the body back together

Great job on the sectioning. Dont know what you are using for glue but for big projects like this I use Ambroid Proweld. It melts the two pieces together perfectly and is very strong!

 

Keep going I like what you are doing!
