    I have just dropped the cab on so so far,I want to set up the ride height(drop) so I can make sure I have clearance to run the running boards etc without:"too much" rubbing on mother earth.....the cab corners you used are they the Classic Enterprises ones?so they are crap?...if so, I'll make some jigs and make my own.I have a Stude 259 cu. I'm going to put in it...kinda funny the 4.3l that the S10 comes with is a 100cc bigger than the 259 from 50 years ago...
    livin life,one rusty bolt at a time.

    The corners are pretty crude, I made them work but I was sure disappointed for the price. They looked like they they they had been quickly hand hammered on a buck. they would be hard to make because of the way they curve into the bottom.
    It's cool your using a stude motor.

    Haven't done much on the truck in a while but I got a new radiator for it so thought I should make some permanent mounts for the front clip. Originally it mounted by one bolt to the center of the radiator hoop but I wanted two mounts to make it a little more stable. I used some of the explorer body mounts I had. The brackets slide up and down for body adjustments.

    A friend loaned me his plasma but I can't get a decent cut with it, I think somethings wrong with it. I cut them with a angle grinder and finished them all clamped together on a 12 inch bench sander, maybe my most used tool.

    I have used these blades in my skilsaw to 1/4" plate steel, cuts like a laser. They make one for aluminum too.;

    The photo function seems to be gone, but my old photos are still here. How do I post pictures on here now?

    Never mind I got the photos to work again... Got the Radiator mount back in for trial fit and also made a shroud out of some scrap stainless I had laying around. Stainless is a pain to work with, its hard on blades and eats up the disc sander paper. Now the front end is sitting on it's own mounts for the first time too.
