351 windsor into 58' ford

dudes! anyone here have any info on this swap. i have seen the "aftermarket bolt in kits" for $150+ but there has to be someone who has used 99% of off the shelf parts. it looks like 57'-59' fords are pretty much the same. if you have done one or helped chime in. thanks!

If you check the frame mounting for the 351W, you will see that the mounting area needs to be longer. Most guys weld to the plate to extend the length of it for bolting up to the motor. Do a little measuring, and you will see this.

the mount mis-alignment is something i counted on. hoping to get someone feedback that has one or actually has done one. the mount that will be used is the "single stud" type the stock one (352) has "double studs" style. hoping someone had a spec on the adaptor piece they made for their swap. project has lots to do so any shortcuts would help.

352 is of the FE family. I have a 410. There is one stud hole, and one rubber nipple hole. You can use mounts without the nipple hole, which means you will only have one stud hole.
