first I cut the frame up and removed the front leaf springs and any riveted brackets, crossmembers, details, etc. I built a box frame and put the front leafs on the rear and added crossmember detail.
I decided to go with coil springs in the front so I fabbed up some spring perches. I loosely assembled the cat engine to get an idea of what it will look like and cut the battery box steps down to a realistic size for what I'm doing. Had an Orange Crate cab and grill laying around and tried it on for size
To be continued.
