Default Frame dimensions

I tried doing a search but come up with no hits. I'm looking for frame specs and dimensions to make sure the frame I'm using for a build is square and true. Any help/links would be appreciated.

Thanks

There will be a page in your AIM that has these deminsions.

I have one in pfd. format, but I can't figure out how to attach the link. If you e-mail me : cboyd@nl.rogers.com I would be more than happy to send it to you.

Thanks for the links.

Upon close inspection after getting the frame back from the sandblasters it appears that it has been in a front end collision at some point. There are some welds in areas there shouldn't be any. I'll be taking it down to the local frame shop and having them put it on the jig to make sure it's square.

Post some pics of the suspect areas. There are a lot of welds on the C3 frame that look like they were done by a demented person. GM didn't need no stinkin' robots when they built the C3's.
