  3. where your frame rail is cut off i would weld a plate in side on as many sides as possible then slip the new front piece over the plates and plug weld the front pieces on and also weld all the way around just for added strength
  4. This is a great start. Thanks for the help. Do you think the shop manual will help.
    Know any threads with more info.
  5. shop manual will not help with the front being cut off
  6. The shop manual may not help with getting the new frame rails in, but it will help a whole lot when you start putting everything else back together.
  7. that is true ,you can get manuals at any of the parts dealers
