...of body and chassis.

What is your best technique for mating AMT style body and chassis, at least the ones that don't include screws.

I would install the glass and interior tub as well as the firewall, then use 5-Minute Epoxy generously on the bottom of the interior and slip the chassis in. Line it up so that the axles or wheels are centered in the wheel well openings and let it dry for 24 hours. then complete the build.

Thanks HO - Just wondering how to line up the body and chassis when there are no obvious joins in the kit.

EDIT - E.g. I've just done the AMT Dodge Monaco DoH kit and there is no real moulding or jointing between the floorpan and the interior tub / body.
