M60 AC compressor frame mod... pics?

For various reasons, I cannot test fit my M60 into my car before I do my repaint (I'm doing color change along with engine swap.) Does anyone have good photos or measurements on the modifications they made to allow clearance for the AC compressor on their M60 swaps? The MacAllent guide has one, but it's not super clear and I don't think shows the entire area affected.

Any pics or measurements are appreciated. Thanks.

I re-watched the Blockheads series on youtube with their M60 swap... I am doing the mishimoto radiator with retaining AC. Can anyone confirm if you must notch the frame to offset the radiator so the lower outlet will clear the AC compressor?

Again, I can't test fit right now..., otherwise I wouldn't have to ask

Thanks.
