NEW INTERIORS is right. It can be done but a Nova or Camaro works better,1 because you can use the full length Camaro or Nova headers with no steering shaft interference.2 Because unless you want to use spacers or really wide front tires they will be tucked in too far with the S 10 clip.If you do it you start by measuring your wheelbase so once you cut your front off you will know what length you have to put the S 10 clip back on.Next block the frame up level side to side and front to back.Then do the same with the S 10 and weld a plate level in the middle of the front cross member.This is for a reference point after you cut it off of the rear section.Then keeping the wheel base in mind cut the 2 frames where the width is the closest but again keep in mind ending up with the proper wheel base.Hope this helps. When you get started post some pics and ask more questions.As always measure twice cut once.
