Default Fabbing a full frame for my 1968 nova

Hey guys i have did a lot of searching on the net but not finding what Iím looking for. I have a 68 nova Iím completely re doing. I was gonna do the usual sub frame connectors, fully weld front sub seams, not frame for mini tub blah blah you guys get it. But I was looking at the Schwartz performance sub frame and like that you can fit up to a 345 tire and the rails arenít narrowed and itís all better metal etc. My question is I was thinking of building this design for my own car and seeing if anyone had similar prints to build one or has built one like it. Iím good at fab etc and can figure it out. Just be nice to have plans. If this is in the wrong area please move it. Thereís gotta be guys on here or another site that have built there own frame. Just time consuming. Thanks for any info.

Research GT1 frame design. Consider using 2x2 rails for the main section instead of the common overkill 2x3x120, which is generally overkill making up for semi-bad placement (not at rockers, where 2x2 would go nicely). I'm pretty sure Mike DuSold's Camaro frame is largely 2x2 in the middle, per a certain non-named guy's instructions. There's a lot of good stuff still hanging around on this site for ideas . . .
