For the cab sectioning I used 4 large turnbuckles and welded the ends to temp braces. Very easy to just move a few thousands. Drilled #40 holes in the body and use this trammel bar to check that everything moved exactly the same. Much more accurate than a tape measure. Can draw a line between holes before cutting to make measurement is still in alignment after moving the pieces apart using flexible ruler for curved surfaces.
