Well im no minor expert but something not right here me thinks.... those engine mount alignments don't look right.
The high one is on a new chassis leg the the other on a old one I need to replace.. the question is is the new one in too high or the old one dropping down....

Hi rusty.. I'm struggling with deciding in which order things need doing without compromising the shell strength or having to redo bits already welded in.. wish there was a list on here of start to finish...

I'm in the same boat really, looking for the best order to do things but think I'm gonna make a roll over jig and gonna be a few week before that gonna be possible, so in the mean time I keep reading other restoration threads give me a idea what others have done

the left hand engine mount has broken away that is why its sat odd, put a jack under the sump(use board to spread weight) and lift gently you will see it gap,

so you need 2 new mounts(eventually)

the bracket supports the bottom of the outer wing, so the door edge don't catch, in theory, ;)
