Thanks for sending instruction on uploading pics. I have the body on the Dakota chassis. It sites pretty good. I need to mount engine and trans by Christmas.

Would be interested in seeing how the firewall was handled as I have heard that the stock piece does not fit well around the Dak engine position.

You are right, not an easy task. I am fabricating motor mounts now. Looks like I will have to cut the fire wall. The cab is off now to mount the engine. once the engine is in I can see where the fire wall needs to be modified. The Dak mounts are a problem as they are offset from one another too.

I mounted the engine as low and for4ward as possible. grinding on the pumkin fins, mod the oil pan and still needed about 1 1/2". I am building a cowl now.
