I started a few weeks back on an 80 model Luv to do a V8 swap and decided to go all out. Pulled bed, cab, rear end, front torsion bars, etc. Blasted the frame and started cutting out all unwanted brackets etc. Now the rear is narrowed 10" and coilovers are being installed up front, brakes being rebuilt lines, pads, calipers and hubs being redrilled for 5 lug. Next on the list is removable crossmember for transmission mount and motor mounts. It is a slow process but, it is moving along smoothly!

And if you want to know what BB Cheap Heap stands for it's Baby Blue Cheap Heap. May just use Cheap Heap!

I use https://postimages.org/ for adding pics. 640x480 works good.

I have all of my parts for the frame and rear to get real close to placing the bed on for rear end narrowing. Then I will set motor and trans to build cross member and motor mounts.

I will have a ACE mount kit for sale soon if any one is looking for one. I will only use it for mock up then box it back up to sale.

You're using a third party image host. When you eventually take the pics down, or if they company goes belly up, or if they change the URL, or if they change their policies (like imgageshack or whoever that was), your pics won't be available here any more.

It's better to attach (upload) them to your post from your computer (or mobile device). When replying to a post, there's an "Upload attachment" section with a "Choose file" button (you have to scroll down to see this). Once you find that, it's easy.
