Rob, I was actually thinking about getting a loan to build it from you, but, Iwas kinda looking forward to a 305 SBC nightstand.....

Anyways, I agree that I've got a tough go ahead of me, space-wise. The majority of body stuff will be stored in my basement, as will the smaller (as in less than 100lbs) stuff from the chassis. Really small stuff will end up in my garage attic. I will be doing the actual body-frame swap over an extended vacation-induced weekend. Mostly by myself--I don't have very many car guy buddies who can spare the time, or regular buddies that I can trust to work on my car. Sucks, but what can you do?

It makes a lot of sense to swap my body onto the new frame to do the repairs, but should I leave the doors on or not? I'm a bit scared of excess body flex. Thanks for the input so far, guys.

In a while, Chet.
