Floor pans and plastic body panels clips are on. Now it's just a lot of cleaning fluxcore residue and ready for paint. It's pretty wild seating in it and being able to rub your fingers on the ground.

You should fab up your own rotisserie amigo.

2 used motor stands. Chop the stand in the middle and raise it up by adding material in there. For this car, I would make some bracket that you can bolt onto the stand where the motor does, and clamps onto the front and rear of the truck.

For our cars, you guys can use OEM crash beams welded to either a plate or directly on the motor stand where the motor bolts too. Then you bolt the beams on the car, and lift the car up into the stands.

Cheap backyard DIY

Also you don't need to make it so the car can rotate 360, it also helps to weld under there, when you can tilt the car like this / and weld.

This is great for DIY seam welding, ect.

Fun stuff.

You don't even need engine stands, I built this hog out of scrap we had laying around at work.
