20+ year rebuild.... HELP!!!!!!!

Hey Gang! This is the first of many posts I will have to finish this Jeep. I have a 79 CJ7. I have had this thing since the late 80's. I bought it in Colorado, drove it a couple years and Mud raced it once and got 2nd place. That is what started this rebuild, second wasn't good enough. Any way, engine, tranny and drive train are complete. Lacking a few things here and there. I bought a 77 mainly for the glass body and wish I would have spent the money for steel. But what is done is done....

So, I am looking for input to mount the (unknown brand) body. First I have no usable or measurable bolts. Can any one help with length and diameter of bolts needed? I am also thinking I am going to have to lift the body some for tire clearance. I have 35" radials and am concerned with turning clearance. I do have 4" springs and extended shackles. I'll have more questions/advice requests, but I will start with this.

Thanks in advance,
