71 Tub on 72 Frame

Has anyone put a 71 tub on a 72 frame? I am wondering if you notched the tub out in back or if you cut the frame horns off? Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Thanks Jothan

I would notch the tub vs cutting the frame, but that's just my opinion

Same here. If you cut the frame you will just have to buy bumper brackets.
I wish I found this site when I was 19 and bought my first 72.
It's just another big pretty scar.
