Have the car's weight on its suspension, be sure to clean the undercarriage with a grinder where the welds will be placed. paint the SFC after installation so they do not rust.

what kind did u get? make sure you have the surfaces clean w/ no grease or paint on them. Put a wet rag or towel around the fuel lines. If you have to weld directly to the floor pan pull up the carpet. If you doing this on jackstands make sure the vehicle is supported w/ jacks under the control arms or rhino ramps in the front and jacks under the rear end.

If you know what you are doing there is no need to pull/cover the fuel lines - just be aware of your surroundings under there.

also many times bare steel subframes come with a graphite grease over them - be sure to spray them down with a ton of break cleaner before you weld so the weld sticks
