how to remove cab off frame....

slowly working on a 57 chevy pickup. i have the bed off and the front fenders and nose off. all thats left is the cab which is not bolted to the frame. has anyone taken off the cab by them selves or with one other person. im not working in a driveway or a garage on this project. in fact its behind the garage with limited space and a slight incline haha. reason for lifting the cab is so i can roll the frame out so i can pull the motor and trans before winter and clean up and paint where the cab sits. and roll the frame back under.

what im thinking is i use jacks and lift the cab enough to get two by fours under it and them on blocks just high and wide enough to roll the frame out.

or i use my engine hoist and rig it up to the cab to lift enough to make a small wooden frame on blocks and rest the cab back down on that.

give me ideas to make this easier, quicker, safer... pics would be helpful.


ill post pics of my project area.
