No plans.. dimensions but if you look in my videoshttp://www.saturdaymorninggarage.com/ you can see how I did mine ..2x4's 2x6's & 4x4's with 2 metal braces..
Look at video "stang progress 11/9/10 " Some good shots of the setup

Q - Thank you for the info. I checked out the video and saw your dolly, how did you secure the Mustang to the dolly? I have attached a picture of a dolly my buddy built for his '69 project - any pro's or con's on this style of dolly?

After watching your videos I have several questions for you as I am traveling down a similar path; replacing aprons, RH frame rail, cowl, floor pan and one I have not seen yet but the trunk ring (under the trunk seal was all rusted)

The car actually rested right on the dolly on the full length of the outer rockers right by the pinch weld, we simply used a cloth ratcheting tie down strap to secure the car.
No pro's or con's to the one in the picture other than cost. Mine was under a 100.00 to build

Pretty sure I have 1 or 2 fb trunk openings
Do you need a 71 specific one?

The last time mine was on a dolly I simply took some 4X4's and ran them through my table saw a few times to make a notch for the rocker pinch weld to sit in, then tied the 4X4's together with 2X4's and threw on some casters. Simple, but very effective. When it comes off the rotisserie this time I'm going to build something that attaches to the suspension points so I can line up all my panels and know for sure they'll fit the same way when it comes time to mount them for good.

I was originally going to do the wooden 4x4 - 2X4 thing kinda like "Q's" until my brother offered to let me use a Jig he had at his body shop.it was used to build race car frames. The deal is I was going to get it all set up for My 72 mach then he is going to use it on his 72 mach. I am putting vertical supports in specific datum locations so when I am changing certain parts everything will go back in the right place(along with measurments "Q" Big Grin ). I have made clamps that are attached to the pinchweld because this is the base point for support and clamping on unibodies.If I didn't have use of the steel jig I would have did the wooden 4x4 thing because of cost of steel. Hope this helps some what.

Thats what I like to see & hear !! & your correct when a car is "set up" for measuring 99.9% of the time it is clamped held at the rocker pinch welds
