( I could see this leading to a lot of drinking at your shop to) haha.. depending on your level of fab skills carries a lot of weight on a untested combination of parts.. (somebody had to be the first to do the s10 frame swap) ( somebody had to be first to do every mod we do to our trucks)...but there's a lot to be said for using the info found here on a swap that's been done many times and you would have a wealth of info to fall back on..
i absolutely agree. im very fortunate to have a lot of friends in all areas i may need help in. im also an electrical contractor. which is a great bartering tool, everybody needs a plug and or lights somewhere. that along with this forum im hoping itll go so much easier than my 1st build. now the build has to be completed because i talked some mad trash to my buddy last night about spanking his border line dragster. its amazing what a 6 pack will do to my mouth. thanks for tagging along and the advice!!
