Sorry Hemy43 said ...The best advice I can give you if you're doing a swap, is buy a complete running vehicle. You'll be shocked at how many small parts you'll need/use off of the donor vehicle. Buying just the engine, trans and computer from a wrecker IMHO is not the way to go.
Wondering what small parts hes talking about?

Just because they can , doesn't mean they should. Still trying to clear out some of the PO's work on my truck
Boy, you have some nice sheet metal out your way

That "B" post area is a PITA, something like 5 pieces of sheet metal intersect there

You got that right....The piece on the B pillar that is underneath is actually solid. I am looking at building something that ties it all together. Most of the pieces are there, but they are rusted.

Re: Project Sloppy Jo.....

Well today I spent time cutting and fitting the floor patch for the passenger side. Turned out pretty good for someone who is not that skilled in metal repair....Tomorrow I will cut out the rocker box and get the replacement fitted. I don't want to put it on until I get the front patches cut and installed. I know, brace the roof....got that covered..... Will also start repairing the floor and bedside for the passenger side....One side at a time....

Re: Project Sloppy Jo.....

Not too much today, cold is getting me down.....

Did get the rocker box out, cut out the cab corner rust. Pulled out the bedside and guess what, someone else already made a repair in that area.....Why in the world would you leave bare metal untreated? Some folks are special......Shakin my head.....

Re: Project Sloppy Jo.....

Got the cab mount in. Fitted the floor more and as soon as LMC can get this patch here for the A pillar, the passenger floor will be done. Saved $50 repairing the rocker box cover today. Cleaned up all the rust off it and there was a lot of metal left on it, POR-15 will make it right....Rocker box should be in next.....

Re: Project Sloppy Jo.....

Got the replacement rocker box welded in today along with adding $150 back into the funds after repairing the side panel for the rocker box. Everything lined up nice on the rear panels for the rocker box. UPS showed up early so I got the front A pillar patch welded in also. Tomorrow, POR 15 the rocker box and get the floor ready for installation.
