Well, for the time being, I'm planning on using the stock frame rails and bolting the Dippy K-member underneath it. I've got quite a bit of experience in fabrication these types of things, so I should be able to make it work. The Diplomat is an old cop car with the 318 4 barrel and a 727, so it's all going in (the 59 had the old style 318 and a 2 speed), and the Sure-grip rear from the Dippy is going in, too. I'll try to take as many pics as I can, but I dont have a digital camera, so I guess I'll just have to break down and buy a scanner one of these days! I'll keep ya posted on the progress, and try to send as many pics as I can. I'd also like to use the steering column out of the donor and the whole wiring harness, since this one is in pretty sad shape, but I'll have to see if the column will fit.
