I HAVE LIMITED KNOWLEDGE AND EXPERIENCE
This is a major job, not for the faint of heart and the inexperienced.
Wake up, smell the roses and come up with another plan before you have two piles in your shop. One ...the 58 and two ..whatever you were trying to put under it.
This can be done. By your asking....tells me you do not know how and most likely will spend money and time to end up with a unfinished project you will hate.
This is NOT mean spirited or hateful. Just the truth. Many of the more hands on experienced members will tell you that they would have trouble remembering all the aborted "projects" they have seen and or looked at......and then bought it for parts. I worked in a salvage yard for years and have seen this played many times over.
IF you must proceed.......but do so with a more open look......
GOOD LUCK ! !
