Guys, I apologize for my lack of computer skills which prevents me from knowing how to put text with a photo but with patience to match the verbal discription to the pictures maybe it will help others out who undertake this job.

RE: S10 frame swap pictures

Pictures S10 055 shows a fabricated neutral safety switch that works well (use an all weather boat or tractor start button), and S10 057 and 058 show the extended front bumper bracket arms on the S10 frame. Once these spring steel arms are welded on the're only good for holding the bumper in place, no longer functional.

The site the pictures are on only allows 3mb. I got the rear bumper mount pictured, 6" piece of 2 1/2" square tubing plus a 2 1/2 by 6" piece of 3/8 plate for spacer( 2 7/8" total), each side. This makes the perfect width for the bumper brackets to slide on with a squeak fit. In fact you have to make a hole for the head of the rivet that holds the two bracket arms together or it's too tight. I wanted to make some finished pics but used up my allowable 3 mb.
