Nineteen Ninety Eighty Seventy Five Seven Four Fiddy Eighty Seven Feeler

Title is as logical as the content, in case any are wondering WTF....

Pictorial, since I talk too much.

Have this:

I'll be returning the frame once the body is pulled.

70 rear rockers and rear gutters are rusty, but rest is in good enough condition for the intentions to wheel.

Reason for posting?

I was thinking of cutting the 70 down to a 75 cab, maybe extended can, to nestle on the 80 chassis. Have to move two body mounts and it sits over the front axle pretty well centered.

70 has a 90" WB stock, where the 80 is 112",

Thoughts?

75 cab better than cutting the 80 frame down?

Gutter and rear quarters are rusty, but she ain't intended to be a fair entry.

Think it'd be worth chopping at the back of the B pillar, cobbling up a bulkhead, save the rear tub and doors for some kind of bed?

Or connect the Bs to the Cs (and door skins) and use AS the bulkhead? (back of cab....whatever it's called..)

OR.....

Chop it up like an ol' school T4R moving wheel wells back, extending bed to about barely cover the rear edge of tire and keep taillight?

Cage it, throw a lil' canvas up top with a couple of straps, keep the doors as the tailgate, and call it good?

Boat from Australia already left, otherwise I'd have them throw a the rear cut of a 75 cab with the sliding glass on the pallet, but next ship ain't sailing for 6 months and hope to be done (Bahahahahahahaha) before then, in time to wheel this spring.
