Where should a '66 be supported when installing subframe connectors, one-piece firewall-to-tower brace and monte carlo bar?

Welcome to M&M Kelly.

You should support the car on the existing front and rear subframes. Let the suspension hang loose. Make certain that the car is on a flat surface, then even up 4 jack stands as best as you can.
It is best that you let the car settle for at least 48 hours before you begin the installation.

Do yourself a favor and get 6 ton jack stands. They're much taller than the 3 ton jacks and give you a lot more room to work with under the car.
