The first task once the build actually started was to cut the floorpan and firewall to the rough size and shape that we were planning on building around. Had to position the B-pillar crossmember in order to do that, as that was going to be the zero-point for the whole chassis (2x3" x 3/16" wall tubing). Notched the framerails to allow it to be mounted low enough that the floorpan can sit right on top of it. We also pre-notched that crossmember for the rocker-panel tubes before welding it into place. Then started hacking-up the rocker-panels and A-pillars.
