2 Graverobbers constructed its own vehicle-specific jigs on which project cars are mounted. The jig supports the chassis at the original production line points, and this allows the staff to retain all of the critical OEM dimensions as the sheetmetal is replaced. Having been at a number of restoration shops where cars have been taken down to their bare skeletons (yes, there actually is one), you'll understand why supporting the car properly is important. It's also important to note that when welding on the new panels, you can easily warp the panel itself and tweak the chassis from the heating and cooling of the metal, and using a jig can help prevent this.
