This assembly manual is unlike anything you've ever seen. This Fisher body plant assembly manual shows how metal body parts are welded together - it shows the location of hundreds of welds. It’s helpful for hidden welds holding up parts you might need to remove and replace. If you’re replacing parts due to rust, you’ll find out how to replace mounting parts that have rusted away. The book is particularly useful if the car has had damage from a wreck. You learn the specific type of weld (stitch, gas, seam, etc.) that was originally used in each location.

  • Doors: outside and inside metal, window frames
  • Front and rear seats: seat back and bottom, seat frames
  • Trunk lid: lid, anchor plates for trunk hinges - welded mounting points
  • Underbody: how floor pan is welded in, and also how other parts are welded to floor pan and rocker panels
  • Front End: how dash is welded in, firewall welds, front pillar
  • Rear quarter: license support anchor plate, how rear quarter panels are welded to arm rest supports, lock pillar, folding top compartment, wheelhouse, seatback, gas tank filler neck, side roof rail, location of wiring clips
  • Roof: roof bows, roof rails
  • Center pillar
  • Final assembly: welding many of the above large parts parts to each other

    The book covers cars from the firewall back; the hood and front fenders are not covered (because these were assembled at the chassis assembly plant and not the Fisher body plant). Please see the table of contents image. All pages are watermarked with a background image like the sample page. Buy now to own this hard-to-find manual.
