69 Burb on a 72 truck frame

Hello everyone. Been lurking here for a while. Need a question answered.

I love the 67-72 suburbans. Been looking for one for a long time. What I really want is a K20. The only one I can find around here is in terrible shape. And it's a C10. So, I found a K20 parts truck.

What are the main issues I'm going to run into dropping the burb body onto the truck frame. I know the wheelbase is off by a few inches. And I thought I read on here (can't find the post anymore) that the truck frame is shorter behind the rear axle as well and I would have to weld in the burb frame horns. Anything else? Aside from the massive amount of bodywork I'm going to have to do...

Anybody know where there's a good build thread. I'm sure I saw one, but can't find it anymore.

Cheers,
ahlsy

There are a couple of threads on here about the swap. The body mounts are different also
