Default Installing front frame rails on 65 coupe

There have been a few people who answered this question and also had some pictures . I tried to search this and the picture links are not working any more. Does some one have pictures or a good link they can post on how they did it, especially the setup they used to make sure it was all square. Any and all comments/suggestions are really welcome as I do not want to mess this up. the welding is not the issue it would be making sure everything is straight and sure. Thanks

Support the car at multiple points, and install an export brace and Monte Carlo bar, and replace the frame rails one at a time. Do the worst one first. The remaining parts will be your guide for getting the new rail in place.

I might be able to dig up a photo.

the right side needs total replacement and the drivers side is good, seems like everything on the right side is worse all the way from front to back.
