The first step is to put the panel up on the frame using clamps, and mark it with a Sharpie where all the frame members are. Then the panel comes off, and all the hole locations get marked, at 3" spacing. Holes get drilled and deburred, and then the panel goes back on the frame with the clamps again.
Then I took the panel down once more, deburred the holes in the frame, and added a bead of sealant every place the two pieces of metal touch.
There's another piece of floor to install - you can just barely see an open area of the frame at lower right here. That's the floor that will eventually be under the seats. Once that's in, the frame gets put back upright and on stands, and I start working on the front firewall. That's eight pieces of aluminum that all have to attach to the frame and to each other.
