Front suspension pan jig

Currently working on a '70 911t, in need of a new suspension pan. The car was in an accident so I can't use the current pan as a reference for measurements to make a jig.

Is there perhaps anyone here who has built such a jig and is prepared to share measurements/design with me? Even just having access to the correct layout and measurements would help!

when the cars get hit or we have to do alot of panel replacement on a resto job the cars get put on a celette fram bench . this is done for many reasons 1st to make dam sure the car is 100 % straight and the other is to make dam sure the car stays that way when it's cut apart and welded back together .
you have to rember when a unibody car gets hit it can and some times does make things out of wack thru out the hole chassis .
i have the chassis spec's for the car but i can not email them do to how large they are .
you would also need to get what is called a tram gage to check the chassis . a tape measure will just not do .

Exactly the reasons for me wanting to build a jig. I have access to everything I need to build a very accurate and sturdy structure, but I can for the life of me not find a useful set of measurements. I actually have a design drawing for a jig, but it is scaled so small that I cannot accurately make out the measurements on it.

The damage is confined to the front-left of the car, specifically the section in front of the battery box, extending to the front left suspension mounting point. No further bending has occurred, so all I really need is height and plan references for the front suspension mounts. Given that you have access to a chassis spec, would it be to much of a favor to ask for you to provide me with a few key measurements that I need?
