Should be just shy of an interference fit. We some times have to bend the tabs out slightly (whack with a plastic non marr hammer), position the tub and then another whack, to avoid scratching new paint. I use a thin nylon washer between the steel frame tab and the aluminum body work in an attempt to prevent the galvanic corrosion that eats the tubs behind those tabs.

BTW I have two pair of galvanized bumoerettes like those pictured if anyone is looking.

thanks, I'm going to flush it up with the horizontal tub brace. that way, the panels and capping will stick out past the xmember only their own thickness. just trying to get it as close to factory position before the final weld up. I have a puma style tab mount bar that I'll be welding to the top xmember, so I can't use that as a guide.

final fitment of the cross member this morning and all holes punched in tub. spent a few hours sanding out a horrible Bondo job only to find it not really that bad underneath. still needs a skim coat, but the 1/2"-5/8" of putty they had was easily corrected by a body hammer and piece of tube. so much damn dust.

those are cleco's, or temp rivets. I bought them from Amazon after my painter buddy told me they are must with bodywork, especially these rovers.

I got them from Amazon here. $35

I could have used more 3/16 than it came with, so will probably get another dozen or so. Usually wont need that many at once though so depends on what you are doing. These things are gold.

Panel pins, for holding your work when putting together.
