    Hey Gary welcome to the forum ! Anything can be done but what's the best way, the most correct way, the most cost effective way and the best out come that's the question. I have no idea if your combo will work. There's no easy swap that I know for sure. Is your frame bad ?

    Cars I have seen set on S10 or other modern frames don't look right, and it devalues the finished product. If your frame is beyond saving, you are much better off finding another stock frame and using it as a basis for your build.

    more plane pic's , the truck errrrr

    got the elevators on and working on the wires, the Britt's make this as hard as they could by having the Rudder move up and down with the trim of the stabilizer, worm gear, chain and cables more on that later,maybe a short video because I sure can't explain it.


    This pic is of the cockpit area, ribs are being shaped to get ready for the plywood covering.
    .
    6 months to get it done and then back to full time hotrod building ho-ray !

    Had to make some pulley housings for the plane, so we cut some plate and made the shape we needed. I thought some of you might enjoy this simple way to form a part.

    Well here's a couple pic's 1 truck and 1 Plane. More work getting done on the Plane than the truck, just about done with the wood work around the cockpit.

    Did some sanding and found a few more high spots so I sprayed the cab again with epoxy and I think I'm ready to spray the gray primer and start block sanding for the fine finish I hope to achieve.

    Nice work! Do you steam the plywood to form it to the structure of the plane? Just curious.

    1st soaked it a 50/50 solution of water and ammonia couple hours and then I steam it with a converted rug steamer covered up for 45 mins to and hour. quickly clamp it in location and let dry, then glue .

    How thick is the plywood you use?
    It would have to be pretty light to be flexible enough.

    I recall Steve Lang posting about Bend Ply, a plywood product that has the grain in the laminations arranged to be flexible in one direction? I'd not heard of it prior to his posting.

    Its 3 ply. 3mm thick. The grain runs in different directions as is needed for strength. Steaming wood can really let you get some sharp bends, of course it depends on the wood also. We use Birch ply.
