This is what you need right here. The Trinity No Brainer Body Post Markers. They makes things so much easier.

Just place a dab of dark grease on the tips of all your boby posts, gently place it in position and allow it to softly touch the posts where you want it.... This also works once the paint has been applied.... If you do it before hand just make sure to wash the inside of the body afterwards with a good soap or alchohol (denatured or rubbing, not jack daniels...LOL)

What I do>>>>

(front width of body) - (front with of car) = x
divide by 2, and fill out the space between body and outside of wheels with some scrap pieces of foam, equally on both sides.

Do the same for the rear end, and tape the foam to your wheels.
The foam makes sure the boby lines-up perfectly with the car.

put the body over your car and press down. With a Sharpy mark the center off the bodyposts. pick up the body and with a body reamer make very small holes in the center of the "Sharpy marks"
( best is not to go trough the body yet.) This way you're OK if you ripp of the overspray film before you drill the bodypost holes.

Happend to someone I know a few times ;-)
