Default GTR body lift with hoist?

Hi all,

I'd like to test fit the body onto the chassis now all the running gear is in place but am not keen on the "four strong blokes, one on each wheel arch" approach as it looks a bit under-controlled.

I believe I saw pics on somebody's build log of the body suspended from a hoist?

That looks to be a more controlled way to lower the body and see what fouls etc.

Anyone want to tell me how they got their body onto the metal? If you hoisted it, what lifting points did you use? A beam right through the door apertures under the roof (and blocked up to lift on the cant rails) looks favorite?
